Lisa Small

Senior Associate

I am part of the Auckland corporate and commercial law team and act for a broad range of clients, with a particular focus on structuring, acquisitions, regulatory advice in the financial markets area and private client matters.

I advise on a range of business related matters such as capital raising, corporate structures, shareholder arrangements, retail matters and commercial contracts. My expertise also includes giving compliance and regulatory advice in respect to financial markets and consumer protection legislation, and my recent experience in this area includes:

  • Advising clients on the structure and formation of finance companies;
  • Advising a client on consumer finance matters, including drafting bespoke credit contracts for a niche business;
  • Assisting a client with its compliance in respect of financial adviser services.

I also have a particular interest in private client matters and have developed an expertise in the area of asset protection, trusts, relationship property and general estate planning matters.

Specialising in these varied areas of law has seen me create close working relationships with clients and I enjoy helping clients in business and private client, to achieve their goals.
