Appleby has promoted Caymanian attorney Liesl Richter to the position of counsel, following a round of promotions across its global offices.
Effective 1 October 2017, Richter will assume more of a leadership role within the corporate practice group at Appleby, where she focuses on structured finance, subscription finance, corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions, public and private offerings of debt and equity and general aspects of corporate law.
“A key element of Appleby’s culture is ensuring that people have clear routes to progress their careers, so I am very pleased to announce Liesl’s promotion to Counsel. Over a number of years she has advised our clients in some of our most successful practices and sectors demonstrating drive, innovation and commitment,” said Bryan Hunter, Cayman managing partner and head of corporate.
“We are also pleased to recognise Caroline Barton, a Partner in the Corporate practice group, who has recently been named Group Head of Banking & Asset Finance, as well as Group Head of Transport and Logistics,” added Hunter.
Barton was promoted to Partner in January 2016. Her practice at Appleby includes private equity, asset finance, corporate finance, bond offerings and structured finance. She is extensively involved in aircraft and vessel financing, subscription financing and CLOs, and now has a global role across the firm’s 10 offices.
Both Barton and Richter trained with Appleby and have worked with the firm since qualification.
“It is really gratifying to see both Liesl and Caroline flourish, as we have worked really hard to ensure a level playing field. Both of them share our wider commitment to innovation and excellence.”
