Owner-managed and truly independent, Highvern prides itself on building select, long-term relationships and working closely with its clients in pursuit of their goals.
The Highvern team, which includes experienced lawyers, accountants, trustees, directors, company administrators, investment managers and former regulators, has built a first class reputation for serving some of the world's wealthiest clients.
