A former Chair of our firm, Cathy practices in MinterEllisonRuddWatts’ Mergers & Acquisitions and Private Equity teams as well as our China practice.

Highly-regarded for her specialist legal work in mergers, acquisitions, securities law, corporate governance and private equity, Cathy is regularly sought out by international and local clients for her expertise.

Cathy’s practice encompasses Corporate and Commercial, Government, Agribusiness and Health and Aging. She has particular expertise with Directors Duties, and was a past co-author of one of the leading company and securities law texts in New Zealand, Morison’s On Company and Securities Law, as well as being the principal author of MinterEllisonRuddWatts White Paper on Corporate Governance.

Cathy was a member of the Securities Commission for nine years and the only lawyer appointed to the government’s Capital Markets Development Taskforce, giving her a unique insight into the policy considerations underpinning New Zealand’s securities and capital markets. Cathy was an inaugural member of the Commercial Advisory Board to the New Zealand Treasury, and was appointed to the Board of the New Zealand Treasury in late 2016.
