She has more than 15 years of offshore experience, specialising in investment funds, asset management regulatory and general corporate transactions. King’s previous employers include Simmons & Simmons, and offshore firms Mourant Ozannes, Walkers, and Ogier.

She worked at Morrison & Forester and K&L Gates prior to joining Harneys in 2018.
Appleby currently has eight partners in Hong Kong, including investment funds partner Marc Parrott, who also joined from Harneys in June 2021.
