Grant Goldsmith - Anthony Harper

Within: Banking and finance

Anthony Harper has improved its standing among the key financial institutions in New Zealand and now sits on the panels of six of the country's largest banks. ASB Bank, Bank of New Zealand and Westpac are among its key clients. It also acts for commercial finance companies such as Dealer Finance and Gold Band Finance, as well as corporates such as Hilton Haulage and Scales Corporation. The practice is led from Christchurch by Nigel Oliver, who is 'one of the best banking and finance lawyers I have ever dealt with', according to one respondent, and  'as a client you always feel you are in extremely good hands'. Senior associate Pip Breitmeyer is 'very client-focused and strives to ensure risks are covered, but always with the knowledge of commercial reality'. Insolvency partner Crispin Vinnell also plays a role in the practice. Key Auckland partner Grant Goldsmith recently acted for a bank in the NZ$100m refinancing of a large NZX-listed healthcare group, and advised Bank of China as lender to a large property holding group. The hire of Nick Summerfield from Kensington Swan added expertise in debt capital markets and financial services regulation.
