Kensington Swan is delighted to welcome Liz Lim as a partner to the national banking and finance team. Liz will play an integral role in growing the practice nationwide from her base in Auckland.

Liz is a specialist banking and finance lawyer with over 15 years’ experience working in New Zealand and internationally. She has a wealth of experience acting for originators, borrowers, funders and trustees. Liz specialises in acquisition finance, asset and lease financing, property and construction finance, syndicated and club lending, and securitisation.

The firm has shown a real commitment to the continuous growth of our banking team and Liz is a wonderful addition. Her appointment comes just ahead of the firm’s scheduled combination with the world’s largest law firm Dentons, and she will join a strong global banking and finance practice group.’

Catriona Grover said, ‘We’re delighted to welcome Liz to the firm, she has exceptional experience with a wide range of clients and we have no doubt that her expertise will help us to deliver excellence to our clients.
