Harneys BVI and Cayman Private Wealth practice earns strong recognition in Chambers HNW

18 September 2017

Harneys is pleased to announce that its private client and trusts practice has received strong recognition in the 2017 edition of Chambers HNW, a ranking directory of international private wealth service providers.
Harneys is the only law firm to receive a Band 1 ranking in the British Virgin Islands, and its Cayman practice is ranked in Band 2. Harneys BVI has a very strong brand name in BVI,” according to clients, who also credited the firm’s wide global reach: “[Harneys] Caribbean footprint is very strong. They are my go-to for someone coming into the BVI for a complicated acquisition.”

Harneys’ Cayman practice was also praised for its strong reputation and excellent hires. “The firm deals with the establishment, administration and termination of trusts, and works closely with the contentious trusts team,” writes Chambers. One client stated: “[Harneys] is a great institution with a good team of expertise.

Trusts partner Henry Mander is singled out for his leadership of the practice, which advises individuals, families, charitable trusts and local trust companies.  Clients describe Henry as “first-class” and “a pleasure to deal with.” “[Henry] is a very pragmatic lawyer, but also has a very good handle on the technical side and fine detail that we’re interested in.”
Harneys has a longstanding reputation for expertise in complex, multi-jurisdictional trust and estate matters, succession planning, establishing, administering and terminating trust structures; high-level restructuring projects including multi-trust structures; and advice on charitable and private client trust matters. Harneys' Fiduciary offering administers both private and corporate trusts, and has also grown recently with its expansion into Bermuda, in partnership with Zuill & Co.
