Harneys launches Asia Trusts & Private Client Advisory Group

Harneys has a new tailored service to cater for clients’ contentious and non-contentious trusts and succession planning matters: Harneys’ Asia Trusts and Private Client Advisory Group.

Our international reach allows the group to support clients wherever they are worldwide in relation to both contentious and non-contentious trusts and succession planning matters, including complex tax and trusts structuring, cross-border probate, asset protection, and international trusts disputes.

Harneys’ global trusts and private client practice has earned an international reputation for excellence due to its personal, commercially sensitive, and pragmatic approach. Our lawyers are qualified in multiple jurisdictions and have joined Harneys from leading international law firms. We have expertise in advising on trusts of all types including BVI VISTA trusts and Cayman Islands STAR trusts.

Our clients include the world's leading law firms, multinational corporations, major financial institutions, and high net worth individual private clients. In Asia, we regularly work with clients in the wealth management industry and are familiar with the needs of their businesses and underlying clients. While we do not advise on local law, we are aware of its implications, allowing us to provide offshore legal advice that complements and complies with local regulatory requirements.

Our trusts lawyers work alongside Harneys Fiduciary, which provides a full complement of corporate, wealth and fiduciary services in the BVI and the Cayman Islands.

Harneys’ Asia Trusts & Private Client Advisory Group will officially launch its new service at a cocktail function in September this year.
