As the first offshore legal firm to practice in Asia, Harneys serves as the premier expert in Hong Kong offshore law. 

Overview

Our litigation and restructuring team advises clients on non-contentious contractual restructurings, court based schemes and enforcement actions, including court orders for the charge and sale of shares following awards in foreign arbitrations or litigation. The group leverages its substantial expertise to represent high profile clients such as Suntech, LDK and Rightway.

Offering services in both Chinese and English, Harneys’ team regularly travels to appear as client advocates in court for both BVI and Cayman proceedings. Our clients benefit from the close partnership between our Hong Kong team and our BVI and Cayman offices, receiving 24/7 service and support for emergency injunctions and other time sensitive issues.
