Appleby’s newest office recently opened in Zurich, Switzerland.
The Zurich office will be led by Jonathan Vanderkar, who has been a member of the Banking and Asset Finance Team in the firm’s Corporate Commercial Practice Group.
Mr. Vanderkar has extensive experience in corporate lending, project finance, asset based lending, acquisition finance and securitization.
The expansion into Zurich will enable Appleby to further extend the services it offers and will provide clients and contacts in Switzerland with greater access to the range of jurisdictions in which Appleby operates.
The office will focus on the insurance and funds sectors to provide direct access to the firm’s specialist expertise in the Bermuda, Cayman, Mauritius, Jersey and B.V.I. markets.
Huw Moses, Appleby’s Cayman office Managing Partner said: ‘Our driving strategy is to be the leading provider of legal, fiduciary and administration services in the offshore world. We see significant opportunities to expand our private wealth and corporate business in the Swiss market.’
