Practice Areas

Iain Thain has a background in insurance claims work and focuses in competition and regulatory matters, marketing and consumer law, and property law related matters including construction.

Iain combines these areas of experience with a broad practice in general commercial litigation, from insolvency matters and debt collection to complex contractual disputes.

As well as being a skilled commercial negotiator, where appropriate, Iain works across the full range of formal dispute resolution procedures - from court litigation, to arbitration to alternative processes including conciliations and mediations.

In addition to resolving disputes and dealing with regulators' investigations, Iain works closely with DLA Piper transactional lawyers to help clients structure and document transactions to minimise the risk of disputes arising.

Iain is also the pro bono partner for the Auckland Office.
