Offshore legal, fiduciary and administration services provider Appleby has once again been ranked in the top tier of legal service providers in the commercial property sector, according to Chambers and Partners Europe.  

The latest Jersey rankings have just been published by the legal directory, which comments on Appleby’s ‘excellent strength across commercial and residential developments’ and its client base of international banks, retailers, developers and state bodies.  

Chambers is recognised as one of the most influential publications about the legal profession, providing qualitative assessments based on objective interviews undertaken by an independent team of researchers.

Law firms and individual lawyers are ranked in bands from 1-6, with 1 being the best. The qualities on which rankings are assessed include technical legal ability, professional conduct, client service, commercial astuteness, diligence, commitment, and other qualities most valued by the client

In the most recent assessment, Appleby was described as ‘an impressive real estate department’ with clients praising the speed and quality of service.

Tim Hart, Head of Appleby’s Property Practice, noted by Chambers as ‘the name to mention in the market’ comments: ‘We are delighted to have once again retained our tier one ranking.  In an ever more competitive market, the rank is testament to our commitment to providing our clients with commercially astute, timely advice and superior service.  To have been recognized for our capabilities and record in a well-respected, independent publication is a tribute to the hard work and focus of the whole property team.’
