In the highly competitive corporate world, clients want advisers who understand their needs and can help them realise their goals. Clients operating in challenging industries and engaging in complex transactions require dedicated legal advice which is commercial, sophisticated and clear so they can get on with ensuring the deal is a success.

Corporate clients may need a full suite of services, from assistance with planning and executing transactions, to managing regulatory issues, from guidance in the midst of a hostile takeover to advice on corporate governance or insurance, clients need to be able to trust their legal advisers have all the bases covered.

By focusing on the unique needs of each of our clients, and tailoring legal solutions to suit their circumstances, we have remained industry leaders in corporate advisory for over a century. We have worked with a range of major corporate clients, across a vast range of industries including financial, agribusinesses, energy, media and telecommunications.

Our lawyers work across specialities to deliver advice on a broad range of issues, to local and international clients ranging from NZX 50 corporates to private equity and fund managers.

We provide general commercial advice, as well as assistance with outsourcing, joint ventures and corporate governance.
