Harneys Launches Textbook on BVI Law

On February 15, Harneys law firm launched the publication of 'British Virgin Islands Commercial Law', which is the first textbook that focuses exclusively on BVI law and practice. This event was attended by the representatives of business and legal community.

Governor McCleary and Premier and Minister for Finance Dr. D. Orlando Smith congratulated Harneys on the book's publication and talked on the significance of such a publication about the British Virgin Islands which depends on financial services industry. By words of Premier Smith, Harneys for several decades has been a committed company in the British Virgin Islands.

The textbook is written by Harneys lawyers and published by leading legal publisher, Sweet and Maxwell. It includes chapters on Company Law, Credit and Security, Law of Property, Financial Services Law, Investment Funds, Insolvency Law, Dispute Resolution and Trusts.

In January, the firm celebrated the publication of the new textbook in Hong Kong where it held legal seminar and interactive session on recent legal developments in the BVI jurisdiction.
