Dukesons Business Law - Auckland, New Zealand.
I'm a business lawyer in Auckland (commercial lawyer). I work with New Zealand businesses and with overseas businesses operating in New Zealand (including branches and subsidiaries of overseas companies). A number of accounting practices and law firms are also clients. Business clients consult me not just for my expertise but because they want a lawyer who is practical, takes the time to understand their business and their legal issues, keeps them informed and meets their deadlines, and is contactable.
You will deal with me personally, so that you won't be shuffled from lawyer to lawyer. You will get consistency and I will get to understand your business and your legal needs. Where outside expertise is required (tax advice, barristers for litigation etc), I can enlist the aid of experts .
Much of what I do is designed to help clients to avoid or minimise legal risk e.g. by having good contracts or other documentation in place or by getting good advice ahead of time. It makes sense to invest in getting things right at the outset rather than to try to pick up the pieces later at possibly much greater cost. Inevitably however, I also assist clients where problems have arisen.
Business law isn't getting easier or simpler. I can help you deal with the complexities. My objective is to achieve the best possible outcome for you and to exceed your expectations.
