Appleby has appointed David Bulley to this post, effective January 3.
Mr Adderley said: “I am proud of Appleby and what the group has achieved during my tenure.
“It’s time to hand over the direction and day-to-day operations of the Hong Kong office to my colleague David whose business acumen and tenacity will drive the office to even greater success. “
The company said Bulley will also lead Appleby’s corporate practice in Hong Kong, while continuing to lead the private equity, mergers and acquisitions and corporate restructuring teams in Asia and co- Global Head of Special Purpose Acquisition Companies.

Mr Bullley joined Appleby in 2015, originally in the company’s Cayman office before moving to Hong Kong in June of last year.
He said: “I look forward to continuing to lead the development and progression of the office after the strong foundation Cameron established during his five years as managing partner of the office.
“As one of Hong Kong’s longest-standing offshore law firms, we pride ourselves on providing sound business advice to meet the needs of our clients and the region continues to be a market of its own for Appleby. . “
