Member Profile - Duncan Cotterill
Duncan Cotterill is a proud member of the New Zealand Scandinavia Business Association, supporting partnerships between individuals and organisations in New Zealand and Scandinavia for the benefit of bilateral trade and good will. Partner Chris Linton is also a valued member and secretary of our association.
Duncan Cotterill is one of New Zealand’s leading national firms, with offices in Auckland, Welington, Nelson and Christchurch. It’s our enterprising attitude – taking opportunities when they arise – and our strong commercial and pragmatic approach that attracts enterprising people and organisations to work with us.
We act extensively for multinationals, foreign investors and high net-worth individuals investing in New Zealand (whether mergers and acquistions, joint ventures, or establishing greenfield operations), and on their ongoing New Zealand operations. Our corporate/commercial, IP, HR and dispute resolution teams provide specialist in-market support for New Zealand subsidiaries with limited access to head office resources.
Our clients value our global outlook and strong international connections. Many of our partners and lawyers have practiced extensively offshore. This gives us valuable first-hand experience working across borders, and a strong appreciation for the cultural, legal, political and economic differences that impact international transactions, and ongoing operations in New Zealand. We are a member of The International Trademark Association (INTA) and TerraLex, one of the largest legal networks in the world.
