As law clerks in the Auckland Banking and Finance team, we were exposed to a massive range of industry knowledge and expertise. The team advises on all aspects of New Zealand law that apply to borrowers and lenders, including (but not limited to) debt capital markets, leverage acquisition financing, sustainable and green financing, takeover finance, securitisation, structured derivatives, and project/asset finance. As law clerks, we had a front-row seat to watch how the team navigated the commercial landscape to construct and execute complex, market-leading deals. While at the same time, gaining hands-on experience through attending client meetings and negotiations, reviewing and drafting contracts, and conducting legal research. Being part of the team was a fantastic experience where we were both supported and challenged, as each senior is passionate about their work and invested in junior development.
