Garth Sinclair welcomed Henry into the partnership, noting “Henry is a very talented corporate lawyer with a depth of experience across the full range of corporate work, including significant expertise in securities law and financial markets regulation, financial restructuring and insolvency”.
“His admission to the partnership further strengthens our New Zealand corporate offering,” Mr Sinclair added.
