Carolynn Vivian

Richard Reid

Harneys is pleased to announce that Carolynn Vivian has been appointed Cayman Islands’ Office Managing Partner* and Richard Reid has been appointed Chief People Officer for Harneys’ law firm. Both appointments are effective 1 April 2024.

Carolynn is taking over the Office Managing Partner role from Nick Hoffman, who will now focus on his new role as Global Head of Litigation, Insolvency, and Restructuring.

Carolynn has over 20 years of experience advising clients on all aspects of corporate and regulatory law across numerous jurisdictions, including mergers and acquisitions, finance, restructuring, and licensing. Her new role follows her recent promotion to partner, which was announced in January this year. She also serves as the firm’s Group General Counsel and will continue with this role in addition to her new responsibilities.

Since joining Harneys in 2022, Richard has been the architect behind some of the firm’s most forward-thinking human resources initiatives, from revamping the firm’s Employee Assistance Programme to pioneering the Mental Health Buddies Scheme. Richard also coordinates a regular schedule of wellbeing webinars for employees on topics such as men’s health, menopause, parenting, nutrition, and mindfulness. Before joining Harneys, Richard held various senior roles in the field of wellbeing and professional development, including working as a psychological consultant, psychotherapist and leadership coach to CEOs, entrepreneurs and high net worth individuals.

Global Managing Partner William Peake commented: “I would like to congratulate Carolynn and Richard on their well-deserved appointments. With her unique skillset combining corporate governance and client facing work, Carolynn will bring a fresh perspective to the leadership of our thriving Cayman Islands’ office. Richard’s considerable experience in professional development and employee wellbeing strengthens and aligns with our ethos that our people are the heart of Harneys. I am confident they will both excel in their new roles.”

Harneys continues to invest in the growth and development of its people, demonstrating a steadfast commitment to nurturing leadership from within. In addition to these two appointments, the firm promoted Andrea Moundi Savvides to Global Director of Risk and Compliance in December last year. In January, Nick Hoffman was announced as Global Head of Litigation, Insolvency, and Restructuring; Claire Goldstein and Christopher Pease were announced as Co-heads of BVI Litigation; and Jonathan Addo was appointed Global Head of Contentious Regulatory. These recent promotions reflect the continuous advancement opportunities that define the firm’s culture.
