Recent experience

AMP Capital Investors Limited

We acted on the sale of a significant Wellington commercial property, from drafting and negotiating the agreement for sale and purchase through to settlement.

Maori Trustee

We negotiated the purchase of a property to replace previously leased premises for our client’s head office. The process involved comprehensive due diligence and obtaining the approval of investors in a property syndicate. We were able to facilitate a straightforward move for our client into their new premises, while successfully dealing with the expiry of their leased premises.

CentrePort Limited

We managed the development of an office park for CentrePort Limited, with separate titles available for each building and amenity area. This was a complicated project. The need to ensure public access to the waterfront added complexity to the project, but the result was a successful office park as conceived by CentrePort.
