In Appleby’s Guernsey office, Jeremy Berchem has been appointed as office managing group partner.
Advocate Stuart Tyler, who also takes up the position of group head within the corporate department in Guernsey, joins Appleby after working in Guernsey for the last 14 years, having previously been a partner at Stephenson Harwood LLP in London.
Stuart specialises in fund raising, acquisitions, debt finance, financial services regulatory matters, insolvency, shareholder arrangements, insurance structures and the commercial aspects of trusts and foundations law.
Stuart said: “I am delighted to join a growing team in Guernsey and build on the excellent reputation they have in the financial services sector.”

Mark said: “I’m proud to be joining Appleby and to be working with such a dynamic and energetic team. The firm’s reputation is first-class and I’m looking forward to being part of their respected commercial and regulatory practices.”
Malcolm Moller, Appleby’s group managing partner said: “We are delighted to welcome Stuart and Mark. This is a great boost to our established Guernsey and Jersey teams and it further strengthens our ability to offer a seamless, multi-jurisdictional service to clients from our unique Crown Dependency network. Together their combined wealth of experience and vast knowledge of Guernsey and Jersey law is an invaluable asset, which enhances Appleby’s position in the offshore legal industry and in the Channel Islands.”
