New Zealand > Corporate and M&A

Anthony Harper‘s corporate practice has bolstered its offering with the arrival of corporate and securities expert Andrew Wallace, who joins as a consultant from Lowndes Jordan in Spring 2021, and Matt Smith has been promoted to partner. The practice continues to perform strongly in public M&A, private equity transactions, corporate structuring, joint ventures and capital raisings. The practice is particularly well regarded for its retirement village expertise, which is among the largest specialist practice in New Zealand. Christchurch based ‘standout corporate lawyer’ David Gould has a good mix of intelligence, humility and commerciality’ and managing partner Malcolm Hurley  is noted for his M&A expertise, particularly within the retail sector. Alex Campbell  and Jenny Baldwin, who is the key partner for retirement village-related mandates, as well as senior assistant Jordan Wright , make up other key figures in Auckland. Chris Dann leads the practice from Christchurch. Sam Wilson joined the team from DLA Piper New Zealand in August 2021.
