Are you buying a house? Or selling your house? Or both? 

 

Buying or selling a business?

 

We can also help with preparing sale and purchase agreements, preparing leases and tenancies and liaising with other agencies to withdraw kiwisaver or other grants.

 

We can help you protect your interests and avoid stress or frustration when you are making one of the biggest investments of your life.

 

Other property issues

 

We have a proven history of advising clients on matters relating to the sale, purchase, re-finance and/or development of residential or commercial properties.

 

We can assist regardless of whether they are freehold, leasehold, cross-lease or unit title properties.

 

Our lawyers can also advice you on residential and commercial tenancies, re-financing of mortgages, subdivisions and all other matters relating to development or investment of your residential or commercial properties.

 

Commercial law

 

We can also help with your commercial legal needs. 

 

In particular, our lawyers specialise in:

 

  • Commercial contractual matters (including licensing agreements, confidentiality agreements, heads of agreements and sales and marketing agreements)

  • Advice on commercial investments

  • Sale and/or purchase of a business or shares

  • Sales, acquisitions, joint ventures, shareholder or partnership agreements

  • Supply and distribution contracts (including terms and conditions of trade)

  • Financing, term loan contracts and guarantees

  • Company compliance and directors duties

  • Setting up companies and advising on company constitutions and shareholder structures

  • Consumer Law - including Fair Trading Act and Consumer Guarantees Act obligations

 

Dispute resolution

 

We also specialise in dispute resolution - in whatever form this might be. Our focus is on reaching a sensible and beneficial resolution to a dispute, without unneccesarily prolonging the process. 

 

We have the capacity to handle a wide range of disputes, with particular emphasis on contractual disputes, building issues (including leaky homes), employment disputes, property and intellectual property issues, debt collection and management and insolvency issues.

 

Wills and Trusts

 

It is important to have your wishes recorded in a Will so that your property, guardianship of children, pets, hierlooms and any number of other matters personal (and important to you) can be dealt with in accordance with your wishes.

 

Setting up a Trust is all about protecting your hard earned assets and planning for the future. Our specialist lawyers can help you with setting up a Trust, transfers, gifts and talk you through the appointment of trustees.
