Neisha Mistry - DLA Piper New Zealand

Within: Investment funds

DLA Piper New Zealand has 'institutional knowledge that is invaluable', according to one client. The firm assists licensed managers, supervisors, custodians and investment managers with regulatory matters such as the reporting requirements of the Financial Markets Conduct Act, distribution models, fund design and fund establishment. It is also busy with the implementation of the Asia Region Funds Passport in New Zealand, having been chosen as the only local firm to participate in the pilot program. It handles retail and wholesale investment funds and KiwiSaver matters, and also works with sovereign funds such as the Government Superannuation Fund. Tracey Cross in Auckland and Alasdair McBeth and Rachel Taylor in Wellington jointly lead the practice and are 'very strong on investment and superannuation issues'. McBeth recently advised online investment fund supermarket operator Investnow Saving and Investment Service on the purchase of a book of clients from Rabodirect. Special counsel Nicole MacFarlane and senior associates Neisha Mistry (who exhibits 'good attention to detail'), Geoff Ward-Marshall and Tom Barnes are also recommended.

  • Sentencing guidelines for corporate manslaughter

    In February 2010 the Sentencing Guidelines Council (the SGC) issued definitive guidelines to courts on imposing appropriate sentences for corporate manslaughter and health and safety offences causing death. The SGC states that fines imposed on companies found guilty of corporate manslaughter should not fall below £500,000, while fines in respect of health and safety offences that are a significant cause of death should be at least £100,000. Crucially, the SGC declined to provide for a fixed link between the imposed fine and the turnover or profitability of the offending company.
