Meet Harriet's team

Harriet is a qualified solicitor in England and Wales, as well as Gibraltar. Her practice is focused primarily on private client work, particularly those with a corporate and financial services angle. She also specialises in residency applications, in particular, those requiring Category 2 applications and tax registration matters.

Harriet completed her training contract at a large Gibraltar law firm, before being admitted to the UK Roll of Solicitors and called to the Bar in Gibraltar. She spent the next few years specialising in the set-up and structuring of investment funds within the funds team and is experienced in the setup of private schemes. During her time there, Harriet undertook a six-month placement as a regulatory officer at the Gibraltar Financial Services Commission.

Harriet then moved to Legacy Consulting Limited, where she became involved in working with family enterprises including assisting with the setup of a family office for a High Net Worth family. This included advising the clients on matters of family governance and assisting with the structuring of family wealth through robust structures established to enable easy transition of wealth and knowledge across generations, stimulating growth and preservation of family wealth.

Within the private client team Harriet is presently involved in supporting private clients with their business and personal affairs. This includes advising and assisting with their investments into both start-up companies and more established businesses (locally and overseas), as well as assisting and advising on establishing businesses locally, both as licensed entities by the GFSC and as non-licensed business entities. Harriet’s experience in establishing private funds as a way of growing family wealth has been utilised in her private client work.

Having an interest in commercial and corporate matters, Harriet has also been involved with a cross-border merger of a gaming company, the acquisition by a leading overseas gaming company of a local gaming platform, and has experience in drafting of B2B commercial service agreements.
