Minter’s head of corporate in Auckland, Mark Stuart, is known for his ability to keep a cool head under pressure. “People say that he’s unflappable; there’s been some high-tension deals lately where people have got fairly excited and he’s managed to bring the whole thing together and keep everybody calm,” said one source.

While all of the lawyers featured in this section could be said to be on a roll, in Stuart’s case that might apply literally, with one of his recent deals being advising Tourism Holdings Limited on the merger of its campervan business with United Campervans and KEA Campers, a transformational deal for the industry. Stuart also advised Affinity Equity Partners on the acquisition of Tegel Foods, working in conjunction with Minter Ellison Sydney. The deal was Affinity’s first New Zealand transaction.
