Appleby Bermuda announces partner changes

Appleby Bermuda, one of Bermuda’s largest law firms, has announced a significant partnership change in its Dispute Resolution department.

Kiernan Bell will retire on 31 March 2017, and John Wasty will take over her current role as Head of Dispute Resolution with effect from 1 April 2017.

Kiernan Bell’s retirement continues a generational shift amongst Appleby’s litigation partners, following on from the recent retirement of John Riihiluoma (who continues to practice as a counsel on certain matters).

The retirement of senior partners from a law firm is not a straightforward process: it will be interesting to see how it is managed by Appleby Bermuda, as well some as other Bermuda law firms with an aging partnership.
