For anyone seeking legal advice in the BVI, there’s only one place to turn and that’s Harneys. Established in 1960, the firm has gone from strength to strength and is today the first port of call for anyone requiring legal services on the islands.
We sat down with Johan Henry T, Partner at Harneys, at the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show, to learn more about the company’s services, its clients' requirements, and much more.
“Harneys is the largest and longest established law firm in the islands, we were established in 1960 by Harold Harney and has since grown into a global multi-jurisdictional award-winning firm with a significant private client, trusts and estates practice, serving clients globally from 14 offices practiced by 45 partners, 146 lawyers and over 400 staff in total in several jurisdictions across the globe,” he told us.
“We are incredibly proud of a number of awards, most recently offshore law firm of the year 2016. Our typical clients span the range from individuals in the jurisdiction in which we practice law to more globally based high net worth individuals to institutional clients, banks ,trust companies seeking seeking succession and estate planning solutions generally for their clients.
“Some clients want a fully managed solution. Our focus is always the client and as such the offering is bespoke and driven by client needs. So there’s some clients for which a fully managed solution is appropriate and for others they want bits and pieces of assistance on different elements and portfolio management from heir perspective.”
