The British Virgin Islands is a leading international finance centre with a strong domestic economy driven by high-end real estate developments and international private sector investments. As a British Overseas Territory the British Virgin Islands enjoy the reputation of being a tax neutral, politically stable and economically secure jurisdiction. This reputation, together with a legal system based on English common law, tight control policies and modern legislation has resulted in BVI companies being both recognised and accepted as reputable investment vehicles worldwide.
Harneys – the original BVI law firm – has more than 50 years experience assisting clients from all around the world with a wide range of BVI legal and commercial issues. We have been an integral part of the British Virgin Islands’ development as a premier offshore centre and no team has a better understanding of the jurisdiction’s nuances and flexibility.
Clients choose us for our attentive and personal service, the excellence of our work, and for our experience and leadership in the BVI. We are consistently ranked as the leading law firm in the British Virgin Islands by independent legal directories including Chambers, IFLR1000 and the Legal 500. Harneys’ depth of knowledge and experience in the BVI is unmatched.
Driving our success for more than 50 years is a simple yet unyielding commitment to helping our clients meet their goals. No two clients are exactly the same but our promise remains consistent; responsiveness, personal service and absolute quality in the work we deliver.
