Guidance through Governance


We have assisted with providing support to Boards of Directors, and senior management in terms of compliance obligations and understanding the inter relationships between governance and management.

In general, reporting obligations can be onerous and make complicated by specific obligations in respect of transactions. Our expertise is to assist corporate clients through these issues to ensure that they can concentrate the commercial activities.

Members of our team hold governance positions in organisations such as Toi Foundation, Sport Taranaki, Govett-Brewster Art Gallery, Taranaki Women’s Refuge, He Toronga Pakihi ki Taranaki (the Taranaki Māori Business Network) and many more. We therefore have first-hand governance experience as well as legal expertise.
