Business law specialist

Business and financial markets law is complex.  The consequences of a breach can be serious for your career, your company and your livelihood.


The last seven years have seen a big shake up in financial markets regulation in New Zealand. The law is still evolving and at times it’s hard to know where you stand.

If you’re facing regulatory action, or dealing with insolvency or liquidation, an insurance dispute, liquidated damages or any other contractual claim, you need specialist advice you can trust.


I’m Merran Keil, and I’m a specialist business and finance lawyer.

Whether you’re a director, a broker, a financial advisor, or anyone who works in financial services or commercial contracts, I can help resolve your legal problems.

Over the last two decades I’ve worked on all sides of financial and contractual disputes - as an insolvency practitioner, a commercial litigator, business lawyer, and a senior solicitor at the Financial Markets Authority (FMA).

I provide specialist advice and advocacy on commercial contract claims and financial disputes including:

  • Insolvency, receivership liquidation and administration law
  • Regulatory action by the FMA (and other government agencies)
  • Insurance policies and insurance claim disputes
  • Commercial contract claims
  • Construction contract disputes and liquidated damages claims
  • Anti-money laundering prosecutions
  • Privacy claims
  • Civil litigation
  • Disciplinary & disputes tribunals

If you’ve got a financial or contractual problem, it’s important to make sure your best interests are protected - starting right now.
