Kensington Swan 'is always abreast of the latest legal developments and is able to keep customers in mind whilst having immense technical expertise and industry knowledge, and providing  responsive and strategic advice', according to one client. Another client remarks that it is 'one of the best providers of legal services in this area, with real depth of industry knowledge'. The practice is based in the firm's Wellington office, where David Ireland and Catriona Grover are the co-heads. Grover 'brings invaluable technical expertise to the table; she has outstanding business acumen with experience across all areas of retail and wholesale funds, including KiwiSaver and superannuation, and takes a lead in the ever-changing fintech arena'. Ireland has 'a high profile and is great on financial-adviser obligations and distribution agreements'. Star senior associate Tom McLaughlin is 'very impressive - always available and able to give quick and insightful advice'. The practice acted for Kiwi Wealth Limited and Kiwi Wealth Investments Limited Partnership in the establishment of the award-winning Future You financial advisory tool, which included extensive advice on regulatory compliance.
