Schemes and takeovers in New Zealand are complex and subject to stringent regulations. At Bell Gully, we have extensive experience advising on the country's largest and most intricate public takeovers, providing us with up-to-date knowledge and experience of New Zealand control transactions.

Our team has compiled a comprehensive guide outlining the key features of the laws and practices governing schemes and takeovers in New Zealand. The guide will be invaluable for potential acquirors, potential target companies or advisers involved in such transactions.
