Harneys Asia commended for solution-oriented and commercial advice in Legal 500

Harneys has been reviewed in Legal 500’s 2019 Asia Pacific guide, released earlier this month.

Harneys’ Asia Managing Partner, Ian Mann, said: “We are delighted with the incredible commentary we received from Legal 500, which is based on feedback from our clients and in-house peers. It is a testament to the commitment of our lawyers who work hard to deliver exceptional service to our clients.”

In particular, clients extolled the “responsive and knowledgeable” team for their “solution-oriented and commercial advice”.

Harneys’ Asia Managing Partner, Ian Mann, is regarded as “one of the go-to lawyers in Hong Kong for BVI and Cayman disputes” and is a “market leader for offshore restructuring”. Asia Head of Transactional, Paul Sephton, is “willing to go the extra mile for his clients” and is highly regarded for his “pragmatic and commercial advice”. Corporate Partner Raymond Ng is praised for being “very responsive”, while Corporate and Finance Partner Ellie Crespi is described by clients as “professional, responsive and diligent”.

Harneys’ Asia practice is known as one of the most dynamic and fastest growing offshore legal teams in the region. With over 70 lawyers and continuing to grow, the firm’s three full-service offices across Hong Kong, Singapore and Shanghai represent the largest Asia network of any offshore law firm. Its Shanghai practice remains the only full-service offshore legal team on the ground in the PRC.
