Commercial Lawyers



We handle business critical procurement transactions, and have deep expertise in major procurement programmes. We are frequently engaged on our clients' most significant procurement projects, whether for major capital equipment, technology, or services. Our first-hand experience of procurement across the world enables us to incorporate international best practice in our work.

Our expertise spans the whole procurement lifecycle, from the design of procurement strategies and sourcing models and RFP preparation, to supplier proposal review, down-select and contract negotiation, and further to ongoing contract management and governance.




Public Sector

We have significant experience with public sector procurement, having acted for Government and for private sector entities contracting with Government. We have an in-depth understanding of the New Zealand Government Rules of Sourcing and the various contract models used by the New Zealand Government.

We know that business transformation is as much about organisational change as it is about the technology that enables that change. We are sensitive to the fact that different stakeholders will have different priorities, and have helped a range of clients, both in government and the private sector, to navigate and manage the legal, commercial, operational and performance-related risks that arise in the context of technology-enabled transformation projects.



We advise on defence projects and have in-depth expertise on both the buy-side (Government) and the supplier side.

We can advise on all aspects of defence projects, including probity, procurement and contracting elements.

We work closely with defence primes and subcontractors, helping them navigate through the New Zealand Ministry of Defence requirements on major projects and acquisitions, as well as working with the NZDF on operational matters. Our lawyers have an intimate understanding of the defence procurement processes and environment in New Zealand.

We are members of the New Zealand Defence Industry Association.
