The only BVI law firm with a standalone Investment Funds Department, Harneys has three times the number of BVI funds lawyers than any other law firm. Our clients include the largest sponsors of BVI investment funds in the world, and we act for more than half of all BVI registered investment funds. Our lawyers have been at the forefront of the investment funds industry in the BVI, providing leadership in the development both of products such as the approved manager regime as well as responses to regulatory developments including FATCA and AIFMD.
