Harneys Asia chief dead at 48

Jonathan Culshaw, the Asia managing partner of offshore law firm Harneys, has passed away at 48. The cause of his death was not immediately apparent.

Culshaw began his legal career in London in 1993 at Freshfield Bruckhaus Deringer, before moving to Walkers in 2001 as a senior associate in the Cayman Islands.

He joined Harneys in London in 2008. He then relocated to Hong Kong in 2012 to become the firm’s chief in Asia and to lead the global investment funds and regulatory practice of the firm.

Harneys said in a statement that he “was a highly valued colleague and close friend to us all.”

“Our thoughts and heartfelt condolences are with his family and friends. Jonathan was an integral part of our success over the past decade and he had a bright future at the firm. We are heartbroken,” it said.
