According to a press release from the law firm today, September 21, 2021, the free offer is to help members of the community achieve peace of mind and security in these "uncertain times".
The drive starts on September 20, 2021, through October 8, 2021.
In September 2020, the firm’s annual free BVI Wills drive resulted in over 40 free simple Wills being drawn up for members of the community ages 60 and up. Due to the success of last year’s drive, Harneys has extended the opportunity to the wider community this year.
Head of Harneys BVI Private Wealth, Ayana S. Hull commented: “The events of the last few years, whether it is hurricanes or global pandemics, have reminded us of the preciousness and fragility of life. During these unprecedented times, we have all had the opportunity to reflect and acknowledge that it is important to ensure that our affairs are in order during, and after our lifetime. I am proud to be associated with a law firm that is offering assistance to those in the community, who may not be in a position to make these arrangements, the opportunity to do so free of charge.”
Harneys was established in the VI in 1960 as the only legal practice on Tortola, and the first of its kind in the territory.
According to the press release, Harneys stands on the global stage as a leading law firm, consistently listed, awarded and ranked amongst the best and brightest in the offshore industry.
"We are deeply rooted in the BVI history and culture, and as a firm, we strongly believe in giving back to our community and supporting in times of crisis wherever we can. We believe in investing in our local communities through time, money and expertise," the press release stated.
