With a stable government and low regulatory hurdles, New Zealand presents many opportunities for international investors. We act extensively for multinationals, foreign investors and high net-worth individuals on the New Zealand aspects of international investments, cross-border mergers, joint ventures and acquisitions. We also advise international clients on disputes and wider commercial legal advice.

Our clients value our global outlook and strong international connections. Many of our partners and lawyers have practiced extensively in other jurisdictions, including the UK, the US, Canada, and Australia. This gives us valuable first-hand experience working across borders and an appreciation for the cultural, legal, political and economic differences that impact international transactions.

TerraLex international legal network

We work closely with legal specialists in Australia and internationally through our membership of TerraLex. TerraLex is one of the largest legal networks in the world, providing access to more than 19,000 legal professionals world-wide. Partners travel regularly across Australia, Asia, the US, the UK and Europe maintaining relationships with our key clients and referrer contacts.

Our active role in this global network means we can provide our international clients with easy access to specialised local expertise in almost any overseas jurisdiction.

A key benefit of TerraLex is sharing expertise and industry knowledge on a regular basis and developing strong relationships with other lawyers overseas. This means referrals made through the network come with a valuable personal connection and are more seamless for clients.

In 2018, TerraLex was awarded the Global Network of the Year award at The Lawyer European Awards in London.
