Blackwells Law Firm Newmarket Auckland


Legal Advice Auckland



Corporate law and commercial law is a major part of our law firm's practice and Blackwells has extensive experience in this area. Some of our clients are high profile or well established organisations, while others are start-ups and emerging businesses.

Whatever the size, we are there at every stage in the development of a client's business venture, and are always available to provide appropriate advice. Based on years of experience, we can make a crucial difference to the success of your company.

Blackwells corporate and commercial team has expertise in a wide range of matters including:

  • Business structures and incorporations
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Share sales and purchases
  • Asset sales and purchases
  • Shareholder agreements
  • Joint ventures
  • Limited partnerships
  • Business sales and purchases
  • Amalgamations and corporate restructurings
  • Due diligence reports and advice
  • Commercial contracts and agreements

We also have expertise in the area of corporate governance, shareholder rights and obligations, and duties of directors and officers. We advise clients on regulatory matters and consents and compliance to ensure their businesses are operating within the law.

As well as dealing with core company documentation, we advise on terms of trade, distribution, licensing, franchise and supply agreements. We also have considerable experience in banking and finance transactions, acting for both lenders and corporate borrowers, and in capital raisings, both debt and equity.

We tailor our approach to suit the client and the transaction. Some of our clients are larger corporates, businesses and entrepreneurs who buy and sell businesses frequently; and they normally require assistance at the transactional end of a deal. On the other hand, first-time buyers and sellers often need more guidance, and for them, we provide a comprehensive service and all the assistance required in what can be a complex process.
