'The service has always been, and remains, outstanding', remarks a client of Anthony Harper, which has a large corporate and commercial team in both Auckland and Christchurch. 'The advice is astute and balanced, and its knowledge of our business and industry sector is second to none', says another client. The firm's recent work includes significant transactions for leading agricultural goods manufacturer and supplier Donaghys, listed agri-business company Scales Corporation, Canadian venture-capital group Volaris, and the world’s largest commercial vehicle manufacturer Mercedes-Benz. The practice is led by Chris Dann in the Christchurch office. 'His ability to interpret our requirements and wishes into a succinct legal document is extraordinary', says a client of 'practical, commercial, best-in-business' partner David Gould, who led Donaghy's sale of its crop packaging business. Newly promoted partner Megan Compton also played a key role in that transaction. In Auckland, Geoff Hosking, who acted for Volaris, and managing partner Malcolm Hurley are the standout practitioners.
