Harneys London ranked as top tier by UK directories

We are pleased to announce that our London office has retained its top tier recommendation from both Chambers and Partners (Chambers) and Legal 500, which recently released their annual rankings of law firms in the UK.

For the seventh consecutive year, Chambers has recommended us as a band one firm for offshore British Virgin Islands law. Our clients state, "the team has demonstrated a high level of responsiveness coupled with clear legal advice and a solid commercial base," adding: "they have deep experience in cross-border insolvency and dispute resolution matters." Other market sources note that "this is the go-to firm for BVI advice." We have also retained our band two ranking for offshore Cayman Islands law.

Partner Indira Birkwood is ranked by Chambers for her BVI Banking and Finance expertise. Clients say "She produces high-quality work on time. She is very responsive." Litigation partner William Peake and funds partner Christopher Hall have been recognised by Chambers for Cayman Islands law.

We have also been ranked in tier one for Legal 500, with clients noting that we are 'First rate for BVI matters', and that they 'experience a high level of personal attention and client care and the advice received is valuable, taking account of strategy and commercial realities'. Others describe our team as 'first class; its lawyers bring great knowledge and really know what they are doing'.

Both London Managing Partner Phillip Kite and Partner Christopher Hall have been recognised by Legal 500.

Harneys’ London team comprises 15 lawyers, including seven partners. Our network is the largest among offshore law firms with 12 locations globally, allowing us to provide reliable and timely service on even the most complex cross-border transactions and disputes.
