Media Release 7 September 2004

Simpson Grierson appointed as a chief legal advisor for Telecom

Simpson Grierson continues to welcome new and impressive clients into its portfolio mix and is particularly proud to announce that it has been appointed as a chief legal advisor for Telecom.

Simpson Grierson Chairman Rob Fisher says, “We look forward to growing our partnership with New Zealand’s largest listed company.”

Simpson Grierson works on some of New Zealand’s highest profile and most complex legal work. Recent examples include:

- Being appointed chief New Zealand legal advisor to Toll NZ (formerly Tranz Rail) having acted for Australian logistics firm Toll Holdings on its successful takeover of New Zealand’s largest rail company
- Advising international children’s wear brand Pumpkin Patch on its successful IPO
- Advising Tenon as the target of Rubicon’s partial takeover pitch
- Guiding Rural Portfolio Investments’ successful takeover bid for Wrightson
- Advising the New Plymouth District Council on the sale of its stake in Powerco

“We are delighted to be adding Telecom to the list of high profile names on our extensive client list. The appointment comes as the latest edition of our innovative firm magazine Source is released. Source keeps readers informed about legal issues, celebrates clients' successes and walks you through some of the high-profile and complex deals Simpson Grierson has been involved in.”

Source magazine uses the same striking visual style as our distinctive print and billboard ads and has been extremely well received by its target market which includes leading business figures and key executives and legal counsel at New Zealand’s top companies. Readers both nationally and internationally, who are accustomed to more formal legal firm publications, have congratulated Simpson Grierson on breaking new ground in the legal services industry.

Simpson Grierson is also this week launching a new ad in its series highlighting the firm’s commitment to partnering clients to achieve successful and enduring business relationships. The latest ad features Chairman Rob Fisher in a lift, going up, indicating a firm on the move. To date Simpson Grierson’s advertising includes the Hollywood ad, illustrating our work with Hollywood producers including New Line Cinema, Walden Media, Universal Studios and other international studios, and the security guard ad highlighting our capital raising work for investment holding company GPG.
