Harney Westwood & Riegels



Harneys’ Asia team continues to expand each year with 36 lawyers currently practising in Hong Kong, Singapore, Shanghai and Japan. Our clients always receive unmatched and distinctive legal counsel and services from Asia’s leading offshore litigation practice.


Each Asia office provides a breadth of services for clients across the world. Our Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore teams offer the full complement of offshore transactional services, covering all key BVI and Cayman Islands transactional, restructuring and litigation practice areas. Our Tokyo office boasts the only native Japanese qualified lawyer (Bengoshi) practising offshore law in the market. Whilst also offering a full range of offshore transactional services, our team in Japan specialises in investment funds, corporate, finance and dispute resolutions. In particular the team advises a Japanese and international client base on the structuring, establishment, launch and maintenance of offshore funds, including mutual funds, hedge funds and private equity funds. 


The growth of Harneys’ Asia operation is rooted in our dedication to ensuring the satisfaction of each client. Anchored by over a decade of experience in our Hong Kong office, the recent additions of branches in Singapore, Shanghai and Tokyo exemplify the increasing demand of our offshore legal services for global companies seeking unmatched results.
