Harneys has been reviewed in Legal 500’s 2020 Asia Pacific guide.
The Asia team has been credited as “user-friendly” with a “good name in the market” and is noted for being “on all of the major banks panels.” In addition, a source said: “The firm has significant bandwidth on the banking and finance front.”
The following partners have been ranked “leading individuals”: Asia Managing Partner Ian Mann, who is noted by sources as a “standout lawyer”; Partner Raymond Ng who is recognised as, “commercial, practical and efficient”; head of the firm’s Asia Restructuring practice, Chai Ridgers; and the “technically strong and responsive” Paul Sephton who is head of the firm’s Transactional team in Asia. Other key lawyers highlighted in the review include: Partners Paula Kay, the firm’s new head of Litigation in Asia, Monica Chu, Maggie Kwok; Senior Associates Aleisha Brown and Ian Clark; and Associate Danni Liu.
Ian Mann said: “We are delighted with the client testimonials and feedback from our in-house peers. Our lawyers are committed to delivering an exceptional and timely service to our clients.”
Harneys is one of the most dynamic and fastest growing offshore law firms in Asia. The firm’s Hong Kong team is the largest of any offshore law firm, while its Shanghai and Singapore teams are both undergoing significant expansion. Earlier this month, the firm announced the relocation of two key members of the firm’s Litigation, Insolvency and Restructuring team to Singapore in order to meet the growing client need in this expanding area in the region.
