Appleby enhances Jersey corporate group

Offshore giant Appleby has expanded its Jersey-based corporate and commercial practice with the appointment of two lawyers.

Alastair Drummond, who specialises in property finance and banking law, joins as an advocate from Channel Islands rival Carey Olsen.

Meanwhile, Sarah Bolton has relocated from Appleby’s Cayman Islands office. She joins the Jersey office as counsel, focusing on investment funds.

Jersey corporate and commercial group head Mark Lewis, said: “Alastair is well known in Jersey for his property finance expertise and Sarah’s specialist working knowledge of the investment funds industry will ensure that Appleby remains a major player in the sector.”

Drummond qualified as an English solicitor in 1997 before re-qualifying as a Jersey advocate in 2003.

Bolton was admitted as a solicitor of England and Wales (non-practising) in 1988 and has practised as in the Cayman Islands since 1998.
