Our banking and finance partners are recognised leaders in the market.

We are trusted by clients to help them navigate commercial issues, complex legislation and diverse stakeholder interests relating to their financial arrangements – from structuring and implementing debt financing transactions to financial regulation and payment and clearing systems. 

We are a full service firm, with specialist banking and finance offerings in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

The banking and finance team is supplemented by our recognised experts in the insolvency, restructuring and corporate rescue space. 

Recently we have led the market in the development of innovative "path-finding" transactions in the project and infrastructure space (particularly in irrigation, schools, prisons, social housing) and the agriculture and aquaculture space (including forestry, fruit, honey, dairy, salmon, mussels and relating logistics and industries). 

In addition to this strength, our full service offering includes leading expertise in the following areas: cross border and domestic leverage and acquisition finance, securitisation and alternative off-balance sheet finance, tax, financial sector regulation, payments and clearing systems, inbound financial service offerings, complex asset finance (including aircraft finance), secondary debt trading, portfolio acquisitions and special situation transactions, private equity and alternative capital.
