Daniel Wong - Flacks & Wong

Within: Corporate and M&A

Corporate boutique Flacks & Wong is 'very diligent and responsive with top-notch business acumen; it is particularly excellent at tailoring the advice for the client, and it is equally adept across all sizes of transaction'. 'This firm is at the top end and compares very well to others operating in their area', remarks a client. The two-partner firm is highly experienced in M&A transactions, has a fast-growing client list and has been involved in innovative forms of capital raising. For example, it is the only firm to have successfully advised a domestic issuer on a social bond offering. David Flacks is 'the wise old fox who has been there, done that, knows everybody around town and remains a very strong technician'. Daniel Wong is 'the up-and-comer with very broad legal knowledge and a very good network'. Wong acted for Oyster Property Group in a joint venture to acquire a NZ$209m commercial property.
