Lawyers from Appleby, Carey Olsen, Collas Crill and Corbett Le Quesne have been named in the Legal 500, an annual independent directory of worldwide law firms.

The guide aimed at buyers of legal services ranks law firms based on client feedback.

Seven Appleby lawyers were recognised as ‘Leading Individuals’: Office Managing Partner Wendy Benjamin, and Partners Michael Cushing, David Dorgan, James Gaudin, Tim Hart, Fraser Robertson and Andrew Weaver.

Partners Jared Dann and Richard Sheldon were also named as ‘Next generation partners’ and Counsel Jonathan Anderson as ‘Rising Star'.

In client feedback, Appleby Jersey was described as a “strong and established team with worldwide offshore support”.
