New Zealand businesses have a wide variety of regulatory compliance burdens. We have extensive experience in advising listed and unlisted companies on managing their regulatory compliance in a pragmatic and cost-effective manner. We support our clients by finding solutions tailored to each client's business’ regulatory framework to minimise the impact on them successfully running their business.
We are experts in advising in a range of industries including telecommunications, horticulture, motor vehicle, hospitality, marine, aviation and transport, and finance.
We also support businesses to engage with regulators regarding changes to the law. We can assist our clients in forming a view as to how potential changes could impact their industry, and advocate by lobbying through the regulatory change process. Often early engagement can help shape legal change in a way which is workable for our clients' business.
We also have extensive expertise in advising on regulatory disputes, including engaging with regulators to settle disputes, or to challenge the regulator’s position. We can advise on regulatory investigations, including methods of managing the investigation process internally, governance and reporting processes, remediation, and customer engagement. We have acted in matters involving the FMA, th Takeover Panel, Commerce Commission, NZRegCo, the Privacy Commissioner's Office, and the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.
