During the period, experts from across Chapman Tripp worked on NZ’s most important and innovative deals, including:

  • Vector’s NZ$952.5m sale of its gas business to First State Investment (largest M&A deal completed in NZ in 2016)
  • NZ King Salmon’s NZ$77.5m IPO and NZX Main Board and ASX listing (the firm has now acted on 16 of the last 25 IPOs and NZX Main Board listings, more than any other firm)
  • one of the few true private project financing transactions in NZ in recent years: Crown Irrigation’s project funding support for the Central Plains Irrigation Scheme project (NZ$219m)
  • the most important infrastructure projects including the Pūhoi to Warkworth motorway (a PPP valued at NZ$760m)
  • the most significant commercial disputes, which include advising:

o [CONFIDENTIAL] NZ’s largest business enterprise, Fonterra, in UNCITRAL arbitration proceedings seated in Singapore and brought by French multinational Danone

o EQC on all aspects of its statutory natural disaster insurance obligations (the most significant story in NZ’s litigation markets by a significant margin). 

Also during the period:

  • the only NZ law firm to place in Mergermarket's top 15 rankings for M&A deal value and count in Australasia
  • shortlisted as one of Australasia’s Best Law Firms and a NZ Market Leader in the Financial Review Client Choice Awards, and 
  • awarded NZ National Law Firm of the Year (2016 IFLR Awards), Law Firm of the Year (2016 KangaNews Awards) and Large Law Firm of the Year (2016 NZ Law Awards).
