DLA Phillips Fox


When retail giant Foodstuffs, franchiser of PAK’nSAVE and other well-known grocery brands, went shopping for a dealmaker last year, they chose DLA Phillips Fox chairman Martin Wiseman. Wiseman, who has acted for the Foodstuffs entities for many years, was lead adviser to the merger parties on a deal that saw Foodstuffs Wellington – an industrial and provident society – and Foodstuffs Auckland, a company, create a merged cooperative with annual revenues of greater than NZ$6bn.
