Ben is a solicitor in Holland Beckett Law's commercial and business team.
Ben joined Holland Beckett Law in 2017 advising on a range of commercial matters including M&A, project finance, commercial contract drafting and negotiation and corporate governance.
After graduating, he spent two years practising in the tax team at Chapman Tripp. There his work included advising multinational technology companies and investment funds, some of New Zealand’s largest iwi and a range of high net worth individuals on tax structuring and tax dispute resolution.
Before joining Holland Beckett Law, Ben worked in-house at EROAD, an NZX-listed technology start up, with offices in New Zealand and the USA. At EROAD, Ben advised on a range of commercial decisions including supplier and sales contract drafting and negotiation, NZX and FMCA compliance and investor relations. He enjoyed sitting in the client’s seat and seeing legal advice being put to the test against a range of commercial pressures in critical business decisions.
Ben has recently moved to Tauranga from Auckland with his wife and is making the most of surfing, ocean swimming and hiking around the Bay.
