We are known for our input and involvement in designing and implementing some of the most significant transactions in the banking and finance industry in New Zealand.

Our clients include local and international banks integral to New Zealand’s economy as well as market-leading issuers, investors, arrangers and trustees/custodians.

We act for New Zealand’s most significant corporates, assisting them to finance their activities and business objectives.

We are leading advisors in relation to securitisations and other structured financings, derivative structures and documentation, asset-based financings, project, acquisition and mezzanine financings, property financings and regulatory issues.

This expertise ensures clients get the most efficient financing structure for their needs and receive the highest quality advice.
