Established in 1960
Our story began in 1960 when Harold Harney established a legal practice in Road Town, Tortola. He was joined in 1967 by Neville Westwood and in 1974 by Michael Riegels. Over more than 50 years, Harneys has set the standard for legal services in the BVI and expanded to offer a full range of offshore legal and fiduciary services.
