Simpson Grierson


Simpson Grierson chairman Kevin Jaffe’s recent work includes the Solid Energy restructuring and Hirepool’s purchase of Hirequip. Like many lawyers, Jaffe is seeing some positive trends emerging in the deal environment. “The talk in NZ is that the market generally is picking up … there was a lot more transaction activity last year, which is great,” he said. “Also, some of the deals that were done some time ago through the funds are now needing to be reshaped, so that brings some activity in itself.”
