Harneys appoints new Bermuda Office Managing Partner as it strengthens its Bermuda law offering
Harneys has hired Litigation, Insolvency and Restructuring Partner Henry Tucker and appointed him as the firm’s Bermuda Office Managing Partner, effective 21 November. Henry joins Harneys from another offshore law firm where he was a partner in the Dispute Resolution team in the firm’s Bermuda and Hong Kong offices.
Henry advises creditors groups, boards, shareholders, liquidators, trustees and beneficiaries of Bermuda structures in relation to complex cross border issues involving asset realization, corporate control, restructuring, valuation and enforcement. He is recognised as a leading insolvency adviser with significant experience of advising in relation to restructurings both in and out of court. He also brings significant experience of acting in cases relating to the application of the international financial sanctions regime and regulatory enforcement proceedings in Bermuda.
William Peake, Harneys Global Managing Partner, commented: “Henry’s appointment is part of a broader, considered, and planned design for our global disputes team. We are tremendously pleased to welcome Henry who joins existing Bermuda-based Partner Jayson Wood. Henry and Jayson will work closely with our leading Asia practice and the broader global team, which now includes John O’Driscoll and his London based offering. It is important to our client base that our joined up approach to addressing their needs extends to every aspect of offshore advice and representation. We have no doubt that Henry will continue the Harneys motif to deliver excellent and responsive service, providing class leading expertise with respect to Bermuda-related matters.”
Henry is the third lateral partner hire to Harneys’ Dispute Resolution practice since September. The firm added Partners Ben Hobden and John O’Driscoll to its Litigation, Insolvency and Restructuring group in the Cayman Islands in September, and in London in November, respectively.
