OVERSEAS INVESTMENT IN NEW ZEALAND

ChanceryGreen advises on aspects of Overseas Investment Act compliance.   We act for a broad range of clients across the forestry, energy, hospitality and business sectors, and private individuals. This can relate to land acquisition, and mergers and acquisitions.  We have shepherded some of this country’s largest and most complex “special” and “sensitive” land applications through the Overseas Investment Office. We have also obtained on behalf of clients consent for purchasing programmes to provide options for future growth at lower risk.   By way of example, we have assisted New Zealand’s only oil refinery in obtaining consent for a purchasing programme to provide options for future growth and potential expansion of its assets.

We also assist when clients face potential enforcement action pursuant to the overseas investment regime.
