Offshore law firm Appleby has hired Richard Grasby as partner and head of its private client and trusts team in Hong Kong. Grasby was most recently a foreign legal consultant at Facey & Associates.

Grasby was at another offshore law firm, Maples and Calder, for close to nine years until May 2017, leaving as a partner. He then joined wealth management specialist firm Charles Russell Speechlys, also as a partner, and spent another year there. Grasby previously worked at the legacy SJ Berwin and offshore firm Ogier.

At Appleby, he will focus on trusts, asset holdings, succession, governance, regulatory and compliance, family offices and related matters.

With Grasby’s arrival, Appleby now has eight partners in Hong Kong.
