Overseas Investment (OIO) Lawyers

We offer timely and practical legal advice for overseas investors wanting to purchase land or business assets in New Zealand. 

We can provide you with timely and practical advice on all aspects of your proposed investment, from negotiation of an entry into the sale and purchase agreement to applying for and securing Overseas Investment Office consent (and everything in-between).  

We have extensive experience acting for overseas investors in a range of transactions, across various industries. We advise on transactions across the spectrum, from individuals looking to acquire a personal beach-front holiday home to large-scale institutional investors purchasing significant farming or horticultural businesses.

Our experienced team can guide you through the entire process, including by:

  1. Providing you with the up-front practical advice you need regarding whether Overseas Investment Act consent is required and if so, what are the cost and timing implications of that;
  2. Preparing your application to the Overseas Investment Office; and
  3. Liaising with the Overseas Investment Office.
