Sarah McDonald


I advise clients on all aspects of commercial property law, including the sale, acquisition, development, financing, and leasing of major commercial, retail, industrial and rural properties. I act for a range of clients including developers, banks, tenants and property owners, and I work closely with a number of clients in maintaining their property portfolios.

I also have experience working on large corporate projects involving property assets, overseeing the property due diligence investigations and negotiating the transaction documents relating to property assets.

Prior to joining Duncan Cotterill I worked for other large commercial law firms in New Zealand and Australia. I have experience working in-house, having been seconded to the Commonwealth Bank of Australia and to BlueScope Steel Limited’s Asia Head Office in Singapore.
