Appleby (Isle of Man) LLC

About Us:

Appleby is one of the world’s leading offshore law firms. The Group has offices in the key offshore jurisdictions of Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Isle of Man, Jersey, Mauritius, and Seychelles, as well as a presence in the international financial centres of Hong Kong and Shanghai.

With over 470 people, including lawyers and professional specialists, across the Group,

Appleby delivers sophisticated, specialised services, primarily in the areas of Corporate, Dispute Resolution, Private Client and Trusts, Regulatory and Property. The Group advises public and private companies, financial institutions, and high net worth individuals, working with these clients and their advisers to achieve practical solutions, whether in a single location or across multiple jurisdictions.

What we do:

Our shipping client base is broad, ranging from high net worth individuals owning super yachts to large internationally-operating shipping enterprises. We frequently act for lenders, both commercial banks and export credit agencies,  that have a significant portfolio of ship finance.

Our clients are involved in a full range of shipping and shipping-related service industries, including a range of activities from inception (ordering new construction) through the life of the vessel (ship owning and operating enterprises of all descriptions). As such, we have expertise on a diverse range of shipping related activities across our network of offshore jurisdictions. These jurisdictions, and in particular Bermuda, BVI, Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Isle of Man and Jersey, are popular domiciles for registering and financing a wide variety of commercial vessels as well as pleasure and commercially-operated super yachts.

We regularly provide advice on the registration of ships in Bermuda, BVI, Cayman Islands, Guernsey and Isle of Man, the sale and acquisition of ships and the financing of those transactions, and the registration and financing of private mega-yachts and commercial vessels during construction. We also prepare, review and provide opinions on loan and credit facility, and security documentation.
