“With the increasing growth of our AGS business and after six years as Bermuda Managing Partner and many years as head of our corporate practice, it is time to pass the leadership and daily operations of the Bermuda office to my very worthy colleague Brad who I know will infuse the business with the enthusiasm, dedication and high standards he is known for,” said Faries.

“There are a lot of exciting opportunities across our six AGS offices which I look forward to developing, while continuing to be a partner in Appleby’s Bermuda office where I can continue to support the partnership and our wonderful team of people,” he continued.

Commenting on his new role, Adderley said: “Tim has done a first-class job leading our Bermuda office and corporate practice. We have a team of highly skilled lawyers and professionals, and I look forward to continuing Tim’s great work, with their support. I am thankful for Tim’s wise leadership over so many years. Tim’s long-standing experience and knowledge assisting clients with corporate, insurance and regulatory compliance mandates will help lead our AGS business to even further success.”

Malcolm Moller, Appleby’s Global Managing Partner, said: “Brad and Tim are the epitome of excellence and steadfast dedication to their clients and colleagues. I know Appleby’s Bermuda office will be in great hands with Brad’s commercial acuity and ‘can-do’ attitude and AGS will become a leading corporate and fiduciary business with Tim’s continued leadership.”
