Harneys recognised in Chambers & Partners High Net Worth Guide 2016

23 June 2016

Offshore law firm Harneys is pleased to announce that it has been recognised in the first Chambers & Partners publication focussed on leaders in international private wealth.
Chambers High Net Worth 2016 singles out Harneys for private client work in the BVI and praises its Cayman Islands practice, which continues to gain momentum.
Harneys has hired several private client lawyers in the BVI recently and is the only international offshore firm with a non-contentious private client specialist on the island. As one client is quoted as saying, "when I think of a firm in BVI, especially for private client, they're the top of my list."
Trusts partner Henry Mander is singled out for his leadership of the practice, which advises individuals, families, charitable trusts and local trust companies. Additionally, Harneys' Cayman Islands litigation team has grown extensively in recent years and advises on contentious trusts. Chambers & Partners highlights Harneys as a "rapidly expanding firm in the Cayman Islands."
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.
The Chambers & Partners High Net Worth Guide 2016 recognition follows Harneys’ strong showing in the Chambers Global 2016 directory, which describes the firm as "easy to work with, very well informed and timely".
Harneys was also recently named as an 'International Legal Team of the Year' finalist for the STEP Private Client Awards 2016/17, which celebrate quality and excellence within the private client industry.
