The partnership between FBNZ and Jackson Russell is a natural extension of the strong relationship that has already been built between the firm’s team of specialist legal advisers and FBNZ’s current membership in New Zealand and Australia.
Family Business New Zealand is a not-for-profit, membership association focused on helping family businesses connect, share knowledge and stories, and better understand what it takes to be successful. Their community comprises family business leaders, the next generation, family members and independent directors and advisors across all industries.
David Alizade, one of Jackson Russell’s Business Law partners, said “Partnering with FBNZ is a natural and excellent fit for our firm. We value our relationships with our many family clients and pride ourselves on being trusted advisers to families and their businesses. Privately-held and family-owned businesses present a unique range of legal and commercial issues, and we have a long history of working with successful families and business owners, supporting, and advising them on a wide range of business and personal issues. We are really looking forward to getting to know FBNZ’s members better and assisting them in any way that we can.”
Greg Griffith, FBNZ CEO, said “I am very excited to welcome the team at Jackson Russell as new partners – it is a law firm that aligns with our value set with many of their family clients trusting them to look after their affairs for generations. As FBNZ continues to grow it is important that we partner with organisations like Jackson Russell who are committed to supporting the long-term viability of the family business sector.”
