The New Zealand Law Society has welcomed today’s announcement of the Canterbury Business Recovery Trust Fund.

The Law Society has worked with the Canterbury Business Recovery Group, the New Zealand Institute of Chartered Accountants and government agencies to assist with implementation of the initiative.

“Businesses will be able to obtain funding which enables them to go to their lawyers for advice,” she said. “The Law Society will be giving details of the scheme to all Canterbury lawyers, along with information on how they can help their clients access the funding.”
