Harneys named in GRR 100 list of top law firms

Harneys has been recognised in the GRR 100 as a leading cross-border restructuring and insolvency adviser.

The GRR 100 is an annual guide to the world's leading law firms for cross-border restructuring and insolvency matters. The top 100 firms are selected by Global Restructuring Review’s editorial team following extensive research and client feedback.

Harneys has been at the forefront of the development of offshore jurisprudence for decades and has been involved in the most significant global disputes, winning keynote victories for its clients and often helping to shape the law. Clients told GRR that “the service from each of these teams, their partners and staff is always to a consistently high level, and their advice is clear and concise,” adding “their advice is commercial and solution-focused, not just a recital of the law and principles.”

Another client who worked with Harneys as part of a bondholder group, which Harneys helped in an enforcement action against a PRC-based business’s offshore assets in the BVI and Hong Kong, reported that the firm was “extremely effective at proposing a viable strategy and executing it quickly”, while keeping stakeholders informed and engaged at all times. The client further noted that the enforcement action provided leverage for the bondholders in later restructuring talks.

Global head of the Harneys Litigation, Insolvency and Restructuring group, Phillip Kite, commented: “We are delighted to be named in GRR’s top 100 list, which demonstrates the continuing strength and reputation of our global team. Our lawyers go the extra mile to deliver an outstanding service to our clients.”

Offshore litigation, insolvency and asset recovery are one of the firm’s core areas of specialisation, with teams spanning the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Cyprus, Hong Kong, London, Luxembourg, Shanghai and Singapore. The firm provides their clients with  clear, timely and innovative solutions in complex multi-jurisdictional disputes.
