Josh is a Partner in our Corporate and Commercial Team with over 10 years’ experience as a lawyer. He has a wide range of commercial expertise but is particularly experienced at executing mergers and acquisitions and other commercial transactions.

Although Josh is based in Ōtautahi Christchurch, he represents clients across Aotearoa and regularly travels to Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland in particular. He also acts for international clients establishing or acquiring domestic businesses.

Josh is focused on understanding his clients’ commercial drivers and bringing a practical approach. Prior to joining Anderson Lloyd, Josh was Associate General Counsel at Heartland Bank, so has an understanding of both sides of the client engagement. Before his time in-house, Josh worked at large law firms in both New Zealand and Australia.

Josh advises clients on a broad range of matters – from commercial contracts, technology contracts, and corporate governance matters through to significant M&A transactions, capital raisings, shareholder arrangements, joint ventures, and corporate structuring.

Josh also has a specialist focus on climate change and the emissions trading scheme, and advises clients on a variety of arrangements involving the New Zealand carbon market, such as carbon forestry projects, long term off-take agreements for NZUs, carbon management and other commercial contracts, as well as the scheme itself.

Josh is Ngāi Tahu and is proud of his whakapapa. He advises iwi/Māori organisations on a variety of matters.
