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.
