Isle of Man: Appleby Wins "International Business of the Year" at the Isle of Man Awards for Excellence
Last Updated: 24 November 2010

Leading offshore law firm Appleby has been named winner of the inaugural Isle of Man Awards for Excellence "International Business of the Year". 

Entrants to the International Business of the Year category were judged on their submissions, outlining their contribution to "Isle of Man plc", their commitment to local and international customers, their staff attraction and retention, their resilience during difficult trading conditions and their plans for the future.  The final choice is selected by a panel of unbiased judges from the private and public sector.

The awards were held on 18 November 2010 and recognise the excellence and outstanding achievements of individuals and companies on the Isle of Man. The awards ceremony is an annual event, which this year attracted an audience of more than 1,000 people, and was compared by comedian Rory Bremner.

Managing Partner of Appleby Isle of Man, Sean Dowling, accepted his award from Andrew Moretta of sponsors RBS Coutts.  Sean commented afterwards: "It is a huge honour to be presented with this award.   Winning "International Business of the Year" is a testament to the hard work and dedication of all our local staff: formerly Dickinson Cruickshank, we have just celebrated one year as Appleby on the Isle of Man.  We are very pleased to be able to use the Appleby brand for the benefit of the Isle of Man and have managed over the last twelve months to bring work to the island which might otherwise have gone to another international financial centre.  This is one of the many benefits of being part of a large group – it allows us to showcase the Isle of Man across all our jurisdictions, benefiting the island as a whole."
