And to negotiate the mountain of legal work that is invariably involved in such complex and sensitive proceedings, it is crucial to seek the services of an organisation with a proven track-record allied with on-the-ground knowledge of the legal landscape in its territory.
Few meets this criteria better than Harneys, who boast decades of experience providing legal advice, wealth counselling and corporate and fiduciary services to high-net-worth and ultra-high-net-worth individuals and their businesses in the British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Bermuda and Cyprus.
Harneys’ legal team works closely with Harneys’ associated corporate and private wealth services business, Harneys Fiduciary, to provide clients with the ideal structure to acquire, consolidate and protect their assets and ensure that they pass efficiently to the next generation in accordance with their wishes.
Their dedicated professionals pride themselves on continually developing a deep understanding of each client’s needs and their on-going objectives, and providing bespoke solutions across a range of service offerings.
They work closely with clients’ onshore counsel to provide the required BVI, Bermuda, Cayman and Cyprus advice and to ensure that the offshore element of a structure is fully suitable to the client’s needs but also sufficiently flexible to adapt and evolve as those needs change.
International private client work invariably requires Harneys private client lawyers to work alongside lawyers from other departments to provide bespoke solutions. The core of the practice is based in the Caribbean (Cayman and BVI) and Asia (Singapore and Hong Kong), but they also draw on their offices in South America and Europe.
Harneys’ dedicated team of professionals are located across four global offices to make it easy for their clients to operate and get the results they need in a seamless and efficient manner. The work is undetaken in the location, time zone and language that is most suitable to the client, whilst ensuring they receive the optimum level of expertise available across Harneys’ network to service and support clients’ needs.
