Keegan Alexander – Barristers & Solicitors
The firm dates back to a partnership formed at the end of the Second World War between Tanny Keegan and Jack Alexander. Tanny Keegan had an extensive commercial and property practice and Jack Alexander was a formidable litigator. These dual strengths are reflected in the firm’s present seven partners who remain committed to maintaining the standards set by our founding partners. They are supported in that endeavour by two previous partners, Michael Friedlander and Jacqui Sibbald, who continue to support the firm as consultants as well as committed, efficient and able legal and support staff.
Andrew Barrett and Matthew Pasley head our commercial, property, corporate and commercial law departments. They are supported by two consultants, Michael Friedlander and Jacqui Sibbald. In addition, Rachel Enderby and Carmen Chow are experienced property lawyers and are joined by Correen Painter who, predominantly, acts on large scale property developments.
Carolyn Campbell looks after the firm’s long standing trusts and estates practice.
Peter Spring, Peter Napier, Frank Rose, Sean McAnally and Crossley Gates are our five litigation partners. They have the support of Amanda Hyde, Nick Coyle and Ashleigh Ryder.
The firm prides itself on providing sound commercial advice at competitive rates. Due to our compact size clients have greater access to and receive personal attention from the firm’s senior practitioners than larger firms can provide. We do not disclose our client base but it does include:
• A number of Auckland largest private landowners and property investors;
• A significant number of other high net worth individuals and private companies;
• Many of New Zealand’s insurance companies and underwriters;
• A number of overseas insurance companies and underwriters;
• Some of Auckland’s leading insolvency practitioners.
The partners and consultants at Keegan Alexander are all experts in their respective areas of law. Several have a wealth of experience gained in some of New Zealand’s largest law firms and all have proven track records in their chosen fields.
