ARGYLE WELSH FINNIGAN REPRESENTS SOME OF THE MOST SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSES AND BUSINESS PEOPLE IN MID CANTERBURY.
Many of these clients have been with us throughout the life of their business. During that time we have supported them grow significantly and expand, often into other parts of New Zealand, and in some instances across the world. We have been able to contribute to their success by providing these clients with first class corporate and commercial legal services.
WE ARE BASED IN AN AREA THAT HAS SEEN SIGNIFICANT GROWTH OVER THE PAST 20 YEARS.
A considerable amount of our time is spent assisting clients with their asset management to protect those assets and ensure they are applied according to our clients’ wishes, both during their lifetimes, and after they die.
Our goal is to help our clients structure their affairs in a way that gives them peace of mind and confidence in the future.
THERE IS MORE TO TRANSACTING THE PURCHASE OF A HOME THAN MANY PEOPLE REALISE.
At the same time we know that moving home can be one of the most stressful times in your life. Our goal is to handle your property sale or purchase invisibly. Generally, the only time you will hear from us on settlement day is when we call you to tell you that the keys are ready to pick up. When you receive them, you will be able to do so knowing that everything has been done correctly, from reviewing the LIM and title to the property, to keeping your bank happy. All you have to do is move in.
NEGOTIATING A CONTRACTING OUT AGREEMENT, OR A SEPARATION AGREEMENT, DEMANDS SENSITIVITY AND TRUST.
It is intensely personal, and often emotional work. Helping a couple establish themselves in a stable long-term relationship is rewarding. On the other hand handling a client’s breakup is never pleasant, but we always endeavour to help our clients through this difficult time as quickly and smoothly as possible. We realise that in all such cases, our clients need our 100% support and they get it, regardless of how difficult or stressful the situation may be.
Please feel free to contact us on 03 308 8228 today.
