A corporate and commercial law specialist, Greer provides structuring and general commercial advice for a range of clients including iwi entities and charities. She was recently appointed as the firm's Community Director, alongside her role as Senior Associate.
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 also a member of our Māori Legal Group, Te Waka Ture.
As the Community Director, she is a key catalyst for driving our community strategy forward and will continue to play a key role in maintaining our relationship with our community partners.
