Corporate & commercial

A corporate and commercial law specialist, Greer provides structuring and general commercial advice for a range of clients including iwi entities and charities.

Greer advises clients on a broad range of corporate and commercial matters including general contracting, governance advice and structuring generally, with a particular emphasis on the use, documentation and establishment of limited partnerships.

Her expertise in limited partnerships developed from work she did early in her career, assisting in the preparation of the independent expert report to the Commerce Select Committee on the Limited Partnerships Bill and a subsequent chapter on limited partnerships for the Laws of New Zealand.

With her expertise in limited partnerships, Greer regularly presents on the topic at conferences and events including being one of the lecturers of the iwi corporate governance and corporate transactions courses taught at The University of Auckland Law School.

She is a member of our Māori Legal Group, Te Waka Ture, and plays a key role in maintaining the firm's relationship with BLAKE (formerly Sir Peter Blake Trust).
