We call ourselves “project lawyers”. We cover all aspects of our clients’ legal requirements related to their infrastructure, energy and natural resources, and commercial property projects.
Our clients undertake housing and infrastructure developments. They construct, finance, buy, sell and lease land and buildings. They redevelop town centres and local and national community facilities. They plant forests and harness and distribute energy. They have a positive influence on New Zealand’s built environment.
Greenwood Roche helps facilitate these initiatives by advising our clients on the resource management, property, corporate, commercial, finance and construction law aspects of their projects.
Not all our work fits neatly into this byline though. Sometimes we have to stretch it a little! For instance, we advise central government on many of its policy initiatives, including being the lead external advisor to the Crown on the Treaty settlement process. Through this role, and others, we are involved in designing instruments to give effect to policies, and even drafting legislation.
Project law is a broad discipline. We give our lawyers the opportunity to be involved in all aspects of the project life-cycle, and the support to pursue those areas in which they are truly passionate.
