The Private Client Global Elite Directory was created with the awareness that referrals and recommendations are absolutely key to the private client sector. As such, each year, the private wealth community is invited to share their own recommendations of their top lawyers and advisors, after which nominees are narrowed down to see who makes it into the Directory.
The Harneys Private Wealth team works closely with onshore tax and legal advisors to provide personal, commercially sensitive, and pragmatic advice, whether a client is acquiring or registering a business, managing multiple and complex cross-border assets, purchasing fine art, property, or a private island. The firm ensures that the offshore element of a client’s structure is fully suitable to the client’s needs and also sufficiently flexible to adapt and evolve as those needs change.
