Commercial Property Acquisitions & Disposal

Specialised property lawyers for commercial property acquisition and disposal

Hesketh Henry has been supporting commercial property transactions in New Zealand since our firm opened for business in 1865. We have assisted local and international clients to buy and sell some of the largest high-rise office blocks in New Zealand in recent years and we have a large team of commercial property experts with an unshakeable commitment to accuracy and timeliness.

While every commercial property purchase or sale has its own challenges, each requires impeccable due diligence investigations and preparation of agreements and support documentation to ensure smooth progress to the desired outcome. Our commercial property lawyers have extensive experience with both commercial building acquisitions and disposals, including high-rise office buildings, multi-unit residential complexes, retail centres, industrial premises, and hospitality venues.

We are a gateway to New Zealand and carry out a great deal of work for individuals and companies looking to invest and work in New Zealand – for more information, please see our Foreign Investment page.
