Chris and Jo Thelin

We recently engaged Helmore Stewart to act on our behalf in a shareholder agreement dispute and exit arrangement.  Through what was a very trying time, both Grant Edmundson and Rob Andersen provided exceptional guidance, advice and sometimes a calming hand.

We had every faith that all of their advice and actions were absolutely in our best interest and they often resolved to continue the fight when our motivation was waning.  The end result was a very favourable outcome and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them as outstanding commercial lawyers.

We also engaged Helmore Stewart for a recent property sale and again, we were delighted with their efforts and communication in dealing with our property that presented a couple of challenges. 

We consider ourselves lucky to have such an exceptional team on our side.

Sue and Barry Hanna

Grant Edmundson, along with our accountant, negotiated the sale of our business. Over a period of two intense months for them, the deal was complete. We were very impressed with the advice and guidance we received, whilst we focussed on trading. 

Our home suffered damage during the Kaikoura Earthquake, we were making no headway with an insurer. Having confidence in Grant we asked him to step in.  Promptly, Grant went above and beyond resulting in a successful outcome. We would have no hesitation in recommending Helmore Stewart.
