The partners of Lowndes Jordan are pleased to announce that Duncan Coats has joined the partnership.

Duncan joined Lowndes Jordan in 2015 and advises across the spectrum of commercial law matters with a particular focus on employment law.

Duncan has a breadth of experience across various aspects of commercial law, encompassing corporate acquisitions and disposals, capital raises, joint venture arrangements, franchising arrangements and intellectual property matters. Duncan also advises businesses on contentious and non-contentious employment law matters. He has acted in relation to high-profile MBIE investigations, corporate restructures, complex holiday pay issues and senior management issues. Duncan works across a variety of sectors, with particular expertise in the digital, retail, hospitality and leisure sectors in both New Zealand and the UK.

Lowndes Jordan partner Rick Shera comments “Having Duncan join us in partnership is a recognition both of his expertise and leadership with staff and our clients, and of the growing need for high level, integrated employment and commercial advice. For high growth businesses, and for those that are more established, the crossover between staff, who may have shares in the business, owners, and investors, is a growing area of complexity on which Duncan is ideally placed to advise.”

Prior to joining Lowndes Jordan, Duncan practiced as a lawyer in the UK with TLT LLP, a top 50 UK law firm.
