Property And Construction Expert Joins K3 Legal

Property And Construction Expert Joins K3 Legal

Another expert has joined the K3 Legal team, taking the number of directors to eight.

Jeff Walters is a specialist in property and construction law, with more than 19 years’ experience in the sector, including acting for some of New Zealand’s largest organisations.

“K3 is very distinct in the way it goes about the business of law and I’m excited by those opportunities. And having the K3 Accounting and K3 Consulting teams working alongside K3 Legal will be very useful, particularly for construction and property clients,” says Jeff, who adds he is also very impressed by the quality of the staff at K3 and their can-do attitude.

He started his career with Chapman Tripp in Auckland before a stint with Chapman Tripp in Wellington and then a return to Auckland and Bell Gully. In 2012, he joined Lowndes as a partner where he spent five years, followed by 18 months at Anderson Creagh Lai.

Regarded as an industry leader, Jeff has presented seminars on topics such as residential development in Auckland, the Building Act 2004, the Property Law Act 2007, the NEC form of Construction Contract, and Limited Liability Partnerships and Property Development.

He advises on all property matters, including property management, acquisition and disposal, hotel leasing, management and brand franchising, commercial, retail and industrial leasing, development, construction, and mortgagee sales.

“My clients include developers who are buying land, building on it and then on-selling so I’m involved with their projects from beginning to end. I also work on residential and commercial sales and leasing, and advise on construction disputes.”

In addition to his law degree from the University of Auckland, Jeff has a Masters in Art History so has a keen appreciation of the many artworks adorning K3’s walls.

K3 Legal founder and director Mark Kirkland says Jeff is a great addition to the K3 team and culture.
