Andrew Comer people

Partner

I am a Partner in the Corporate / Commercial team at Stace Hammond.

I regularly advise a broad range of domestic and international clients on general corporate and commercial legal matters.  I have extensive New Zealand and United Kingdom experience, in both private legal practice and as an in-house legal secondee, at major law firms and commercial enterprises.  My philosophy is to provide pragmatic, tailored legal advice to help my clients achieve their commercial objectives.  Working closely alongside my clients allows me to gain a deep understanding of their key drivers and business needs, and it also helps foster a long-term, trusted-advisor relationship.
