Harneys appoints new managing partner in London
Harneys is pleased to announce that Partner Rachel Graham has been appointed managing partner of the firm’s London office.
Rachel joined Harneys in 2007 and heads the firm’s BVI Corporate Transactional practice in the EMEA region. She is highly regarded in her field, having nearly 25 years of experience practising as a lawyer, 17 of which have been offshore. Rachel advises corporations, high net worth individuals, entrepreneurs, financial institutions, seed capital investors, private equity funds and their advisers, and is the client relationship partner for several of the firm’s key clients.
After relocating to the firm’s London office in 2013, and taking on the role of London Managing Partner in 2017, Phillip Kite has returned to the BVI to continue his practice.
Global Managing Partner Ross Munro commented: “Rachel is an accomplished lawyer and has contributed greatly to our success within the EMEA market. She is well positioned to continue to deliver our London strategy and we are delighted that she has agreed to take on this position. I have no doubt that our success in London will continue under her leadership.”
Rachel commented: “As we celebrate our 20th anniversary in London this year, I am excited to have been asked to lead our talented team of lawyers and corporate services professionals. London continues to be an important hub for Harneys and its clients and I look forward to the challenges of moving into what is hopefully a post pandemic world.”
Led by a senior team of experienced offshore lawyers and located in the heart of one of the world's largest financial centres, Harneys London opened in 2002 and services a strong base of clients in the UK and throughout Europe. The firm’s London lawyers provide a full range of offerings across all practice areas and specialisms, and continue to build on the firm’s first mover advantage.
