Offshore law firm Appleby has made two promotions in its Isle of Man office and three promotions in its Cayman Islands office, effective immediately.

Mark Emery and Erin Trimble-Cregeen have been promoted to senior associates within the firm’s dispute resolution department in the Isle of Man.

Mr Emery joined Appleby in September 2010 as a trainee, qualifying two years later as a Manx advocate. Since then, he has appeared regularly at all levels of the Isle of Man High Court of Justice and practices a broad range of commercial litigation. He specialises in banking litigation and the practicalities of enforcing judgments in the Isle of Man, and acts for many of the island’s banks in respect of their mortgage enforcement and the pursuit of personal guarantees.

Ms Cregeen joined Appleby in October 2015 as an associate advocate after gaining several years’ experience at Ogier in Guernsey. She practices a broad range of commercial litigation and specialises in trust disputes including advising trustees and beneficiaries on a wide range of contentious trust and estate issues.

At the same time, the firm's Cayman Islands' dispute resolution team has seen Sebastian Said promoted to partner and Anna Snead and Jeremy Snead to counsel. 

Mr Said, who has been counsel at Appleby since 2013, is experienced in international commercial litigation, banking and funds litigation, directors’ and shareholder disputes, civil fraud, professional negligence disputes, and contentious trust disputes. He has previously worked at Andersen Consulting before joining Appleby in 2011, initially in the Channel Islands.

Ms Snead specialises in international commercial litigation and arbitration in the corporate, funds and insolvency fields and has particular expertise of directors’ and shareholders’ disputes, professional negligence and enforcement of foreign judgments. Prior to joining Appleby in 2012 as senior associate, she was an associate at Mayer Brown International LLP in London, where she practised in the commercial dispute resolution department and was a member of the International Arbitration Group.

Additionally, Mr Snead works on a variety of insolvency and restructuring matters, as well as funds, corporate and fraud disputes. He qualified as a solicitor in England in 2007 and became a solicitor advocate in 2010. In 2012, he became an attorney-at-law in the Cayman Islands and worked in the dispute resolution department of Appleby in the Cayman Office, specialising in funds disputes and insolvency. In 2014 he was admitted to the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court, British Virgin Islands Circuit, as a solicitor (BVI) with extended rights of audience.

All promotions in the Cayman Islands are subject to its immigration approval.
