About: Dukesons Business Law - Business Lawyer Auckland - Commercial Lawyer Auckland

I'm a business lawyer, or commercial lawyer, in Auckland.

I act only for business clients and deal with a range of business law or commercial law matters, including some specialised areas of business law. See the Services Page for more detail.

Business clients should be able to expect expertise from any lawyer that they consult - the question is what are the points of difference between lawyers? Dukesons Business Law focuses on:

  • giving advice that's practical and cost effective,
  • taking the time to understand your business and legal issues,
  • keeping you informed of progress and meeting your deadlines, and
  • being contactable,

while at the same time providing quality advice, tailored to your needs.

Business clients want a business lawyer who they can trust and depend on - in short, Dukesons Business Law. It helps that they like dealing with Dukesons Business Law. See the Testimonials page.

I have a Masters Degree in Law with Honours (in contract law and commercial law) and I tutored and lectured in contract law and commercial law at Auckland University when doing my Masters. In the past, many articles of mine have been published in legal periodicals and business publications, some of which have been referred to favourably in text books on law or in court decisions. I've given seminars for the New Zealand and Auckland District Law Societies, for other professional bodies, and for accounting and law firms.

Renee Panapa is my secretary/PA and is likely to be your first point of contact on the phone (when she is working, which is on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays). Renee is a secretary and PA, not a lawyer or legal executive, so she can't give legal advice.

Dukesons Business Law is known for its expertise, for meeting client deadlines, and for keeping clients informed of progress. That's why clients keep coming back to Dukesons.
