Offshore firm Harneys has named a new Asia managing partner following the death of 48-year-old Jonathan Culshaw earlier this month.
Ian Mann, the firm’s head of litigation and restructuring practice group in Hong Kong, is the new Asia managing partner. He joined Harneys in London in 2009 and relocated to Hong Kong the following year. In 2011, he made partner and was appointed head of the litigation and restructuring practice. Before joining the offshore firm, Mann was a barrister for eight years in London.*
Harneys also recruited dispute resolution partner Andrew Johnstone in Hong Kong last month from Holman Fenwick Willan, where he practiced for 11 years. He focuses on fraud and asset tracing, asset preservation and enforcement issues, shareholder disputes and corporate insolvency.
The British Virgin Islands-based firm has about 40 lawyers in Hong Kong, including 12 partners. Harneys also has offices in Singapore, Tokyo and Shanghai.
*Correction 9/20: An earlier version of this story stated that Mann was a barrister in London for six years. He was actually a barrister in London for eight years. A correction has been made to reflect that. We regret the error.
