Heida heads our China business team. She has significant experience in all aspects of corporate and commercial law and specialises in advising clients on cross-border investments, mergers and acquisitions and joint ventures. Heida has considerable international experience, having spent many years working in Hong Kong and China as a corporate partner in an international law firm prior to joining Kensington Swan to lead its thriving Chinese business practice.
Heida works closely with our specialist teams to assist overseas clients to buy, establish and sell businesses and assets, form joint ventures with domestic businesses and operations, and raise capital. She assists with all stages of these transactions from due diligence, through to documentation and advising on regulatory processes, including helping clients work with the Overseas Investment Office to obtain consents to acquire and develop significant business assets and sensitive land in New Zealand. She also advises clients on a range of commercial arrangements, for instance, distribution, licensing, manufacturing and supply agreements.
Heida advises a wide range of clients including Chinese central government controlled and state-owned enterprises, listed and private conglomerates, multi-national corporations as well as banks and financial institutions. She works closely with chief executives, managing directors and in-house legal teams.
Whatever the size of your project, Heida can manage it for you, and help you meet commercial aims while managing your risk. She is fluent in Mandarin and Cantonese. This enables her to effectively assist clients with bridging legal and cultural differences when doing business in New Zealand and China, and prepare bi-lingual documentation for their transactions if necessary.
Heida is the Vice-President of the Hong Kong New Zealand Business Association. She also belongs to the Rotary Club of Downtown Auckland.
