Duncan Cotterill continues to expand its commercial team with the appointment of David Briscoe and Chris Linton as partners. 

Formerly an associate, Briscoe is a member of Duncan Cotterill’s national private client team that services the largest private client base in New Zealand. He specialises in estate planning, residential and commercial property, and immigration matters.

Briscoe works with clients who are buying and selling residential and commercial property, and acts for several clients with large commercial and residential property portfolios. He regularly negotiates leases for both landlords and tenants and has recently assisted listed companies and government agencies with commercial leasing matters.  

Briscoe’s immigration work involves helping individuals get work and residency visas in New Zealand. He also advises businesses on a wide range of immigration matters including the obtaining of accreditation to recruit staff from overseas.

Chris Linton has a particular focus on corporate/commercial and technology law. She has extensive experience advising public and private sector entities in New Zealand and offshore. Her areas of expertise include technology and communications transactions, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, strategic alliances, venture capital and gaming.

Linton has recently worked with several New Zealand utility companies, advising on a range of commercial matters including major technology projects and cloud services. She also advises technology start-ups and high growth companies.

Before joining Duncan Cotterill, Linton was a partner at another national law firm in Wellington for eight years and at a specialist commercial law firm in Auckland for ten years. She also worked offshore with leading global firm, Linklaters. 

Terry McLaughlin, chief executive of Duncan Cotterill, said the firm’s commercial property practice was growing significantly and the two appointments would enhance the already strong offering.
