The MWM group of companies and its partners presented the award to BVI Managing Partner Sheila George during a ceremony on 21 January 2017 where Clarence Thomas Limited was also recognised.
The event also served as the formal launch of Forge, a new entrepreneurship initiative which will provide mentorship and a collaborative training centre and workspace for entrepreneurs in the British Virgin Islands. Harneys is delighted to congratulate Forge and its partners MWM Group of Companies and Curt and Nancy Richardson of Blue Ocean Enterprises on the important work they are doing to promote and nurture entrepreneurship in the BVI.

Harneys is the largest and longest established law firm in the BVI and the largest professional services employer on the island.
