We act on all manner of transactions from documenting and settling high volume, lower value loans; complex commercial arrangements and corporate financing; lending; listed entities, to trans-Tasman loans and securities.

A number of our team members have experience working in banks and lending institutions, therefore we know how to navigate the sector to deliver quality commercial advice for our clients. We also offer education and advice around impending legislative changes and work closely with our highly-regarded national litigation team for more contentious issues like debt recovery.
