Agribusinesses form the backbone of the New Zealand economy. Flow-on effects from New Zealand's prosperous primary sector are felt throughout the country, from provincial towns to the biggest cities – and across sectors.
Bell Gully is legal adviser to many leading New Zealand agribusinesses and as New Zealand's premier full service law firm, has the breadth and depth of legal talent to advise on large scale, multi-faceted transactions in the primary sector.
Our broad primary sector experience shows a particular strength in corporate and commercial transactions, complemented by experience advising in specialist expertise areas such as competition law, property, overseas investment, resource management and emissions trading.
From this work, we recognise the legal issues and challenges faced by the agribusiness sector. Because we recognise the significance of the sector we have assembled a team of agribusiness experts to provide our clients with a significant advantage. Led by David Boswell, the team use the insights gained from their wide experience to deliver commercial, timely and pragmatic advice to the agribusiness sector.
Bell Gully has extensive experience advising on legal issues in an international context and in particular, we have strong links with the Asian region as outlined on our Asia page. Internationally, we advise investors into New Zealand, New Zealand businesses doing business overseas and global companies, such as BayWa, on transactions in New Zealand. Our approach maximises opportunities for agribusiness clients while delivering the leading specialist legal advice in New Zealand and providing the value for money that flows from specialisation.
