Overseas investment is important to our diversity as a community and to our economic growth.  While New Zealand welcomes foreign investment, there are some restrictions to what international investors can and cannot invest in under the Overseas Investment Act 2005. We have experience acting for overseas individuals and enterprises investing in a variety of New Zealand transactions, including residential land, businesses and farming assets.

Every investment is different, and we pride ourselves in navigating our offshore client base through the complex overseas investment regime and giving practical, strategic advice.
