Privilege, Ethics, and Client Due Diligence — Recommendations for Lawyers since the Panama Papers

Seminar Paper | Presenters: Robert Wyld, Consultant, Johnson Winter & Slattery (Sydney); Gary Hughes, Barrister, Akarana Chambers (Auckland). The publication of the Panama Papers, and later the Paradise Papers, shone a spotlight on the scandalous circumstances in which clients may misuse the services of lawyers, accountants and other professionals. Those disclosures specifically came to bear on offshore commercial structures and trusts, and the role of lawyers in the establishment and conduct of those structures. While there are many legitimate purposes, those structures may also facilitate potentially illegal conduct. Closer to home, this led directly to AML/CFT coverage for lawyers and professionals being accelerated in New Zealand, after the John Shewan report. With Mossack Fonseca, other firms, and the legal profession in the media sights like never before, the International Bar Association and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development set up a joint Taskforce to look at the role and responsibilities of lawyers in this area. The joint IBA and OECD Report was published in May 2019. Australian lawyer Robert Wyld, the principal author of the Report, presents the findings, and fellow member of the IBA anti-corruption division Gary Hughes will link to issues arising for New Zealand lawyers.

Future Planning: Preparation before Selling the Family/Small Business

Webinar Paper | Presenters: Tim Howe, Partner, Ocean Partners; Sarah Ott, Partner, Ocean Partners Globally, 80% of businesses are family owned, however only 25 to 30% of these businesses will successfully transfer to the second generation. New Zealand has one of the highest incidences of business ownership (per head of population) in the OECD. Recent NZ research concluded that many businesses owned by “Baby Boomers” will be brought to market in the coming years, but that little planning has been undertaken by their owners. There will be more sellers than buyers, emphasising the need to ensure that businesses are well prepared to ensure a successful outcome. Creating a succession plan that works best for all family members involved requires a multi-disciplinary approach. While business succession plans are bespoke, there are some common principles that can help owners create a plan that will assist in achieving a sale. These materials delve into those principles focusing on preparation for sale, compare sale processes, discuss the value of the business, the role of management and working with advisors.
