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

I'm a business lawyer or commercial lawyer in Auckland. I have expertise in relation to a range of business law or commercial law matters, including specialised areas of business law. See the Services Page for more detail.

I act only for business clients. This includes small businesses as well as larger businesses.

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. Business clients know that they will receive sound legal advice that's practical, within their deadlines. This is real, not a slogan.

I have a Masters Degree in Law with Honours (in contract law and commercial law). 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. Articles that I wrote on mortgagee sales led to the Law Commission consulting with me in relation to changes that were made to the Property Law Act in that regard. I also made submissions to the Law Commission in relation to Company Law Reform and more recently, made submissions in relation aspects of the Consumer Credit and Finance Act. I've given seminars for the New Zealand and Auckland District Law Societies and for other professional bodies.

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.
