London: Offshore firm makes landfall

The firm – which was launched seven years ago by current managing partner William Hare -- has existing bases in the British Virgin Island and Cayman Islands.
Mr Hare commented on the move to the UK capital: ‘Forbes Hare's growth is a by-product of the service it offers clients.  A significant number of those clients are either in London or in places better served from London, so we see this as a logical development.’
Former Walkers corporate and investment funds partner Catherine Ross is to join the firm in London, while further recruits are expected to be announced shortly.
