Since joining Glaister Ennor in 1972, I have practiced in all areas of Property Law, Commercial Law, Trusts and Estate Planning. For over 30 years, I was the Managing Partner of the firm. I have extensive skills in negotiation.

I am a trusted advisor to many families and businesses providing pragmatic solutions for a wide range of family and business issues. I have experience in assisting overseas parties invest in New Zealand.

I assist clients to invest funds in mortgages through our firm’s nominee company and in syndicated property investments, which deliver high levels of regular income.

I am a director of a number of substantial companies and a trustee of both personal and charitable trusts.

I have advised:

  • on the acquisition of New Zealand forests, sawmills, and a pulp mill
  • on the sale of the Albany Regional Centre
  • on the sale of a 45% interest in a major family owned company to Private Equity
  • on the purchase of a listed public company in New Zealand and the subsequent reorganisation of its businesses; and
  • a minority shareholder in a large company to develop and implement a strategy to acquire all the shares in the business.
