She practises a wide range of Bermuda, Cayman Islands and BVI corporate law and in particular has extensive experience in the structuring and setting up of Cayman investment funds in Asia and regularly advises on Bermuda and Cayman court-sanctioned shareholders privatisation schemes of arrangement.
During her career Judy has won numerous awards and is regularly recognised by the legal directories as one of Asia's leading lawyers, with strong corporate finance, capital markets and investment fund experience.
Judy commented, "It's an honour to win the Offshore Award once again. As Asia Group Head and Partner of Appleby Hong Kong, it's important that as a firm we continue to celebrate and promote diversity in the workplace, particularly in the boardroom, where women are less represented. I would like to extend particular thanks to the team for their unfailing support over the years, without which this milestone could not have been reached".
Commenting on the awards, Hong Kong Managing Partner, Cameron Adderley, commented "We're delighted that Judy's stellar contribution to the offshore industry has been recognised and this accolade is well deserved".
