We are a small, collaborative team with recognised depth and breadth of expertise. We are:
We are a small team with a big, broad skill-set. We are best known for our specialist restructuring and insolvency experience, but collectively, we also have extensive experience in other areas of corporate and commercial law, including litigation, banking and finance, M&A, trusts, capital raising and privacy/data law.
You don’t need to take our word for it – we have been recognised by the main legal directories for the work we have done, including Legal500, Chambers, IFLR1000, Doyles and AsiaLaw.
The best outcomes are attained when you are supported by a collaborative team who bring their combined experience and expertise to the table. Our team members brainstorm and share ideas efficiently to land collaborative, commercial solutions for our clients. We also collaborate within the professional community - Mike Whale has been made a life member of RITANZ for his services to the industry, and Jennifer is a current Board Member of RITANZ.
We don’t run a leverage model, so you will deal with senior lawyers every step of the way.
We each have distinctive, but complementary, approaches to our work. Mike Anderson has a brilliant head for big picture strategy. Mike Whale loves the law so much that he co-authored a leading textbook. Jennifer has a genuine interest in people-focussed outcomes and enjoys finding efficient ways through commercial obstacles. Kerry hasn’t yet met a problem that he didn’t want to solve.
We are a nimble and connected team who are readily able to bring in other legal specialists to fit the requirements of any project. We have a number of senior lawyers and barristers who we can call on to contract with us on a short-term basis, ensuring we are always ready and able to meet your needs. This arrangement means less overheads for us, and greater value for money for our clients.
Our model is lean on overheads so we are able to offer you expert advice at lower rates than many of our competitors.
Tried and tested
We know we work well together because we have already done it for years – and it works.
No-one is more boring than a boring lawyer, so thankfully we’re not. Each of us have loads of interests outside of our firm, and we are lucky to count many of our clients as friends.
