Steven Moe

Steven is in the corporate and commercial team and recently published the book “Social Enterprises in New Zealand: A Legal Handbook” (to obtain your copy click here).  He focuses both on international companies investing in New Zealand as well as NZ companies with their domestic and international operations.  He regularly advises on joint venture arrangements and due diligence on acquisition targets and works with start-ups (ranging from tech companies to social enterprises) to get their structure right.

Steven studied at Canterbury University and worked for 11 years at international law firm Norton Rose Fulbright in Tokyo (4 years), London (3 years) and Sydney (4 years).  Prior to this he spent 3 years in Wellington at a national firm.  He has extensive experience in-house, including one year at Caltex in Sydney and two years at Mitsui in Tokyo.  This provided him with an insight into clients’ drivers and requirements and the benefits of clear, timely and practical advice. He also has a podcast Seeds: Talking Purpose where he interviews entrepreneurs and social enterprises about their journeys.

“Steven’s ability to interpret my sometimes limited instructions and quickly prepare accurate deliverables as well as think ahead to what else I may need – whether an associated email or suggested next steps – has been a huge help to me.”
Charlotte Harris, Group Commercial Manager, Tait Communications

“The guidance and advice I received from Steven has been instrumental to the development of The Commuting Book.  It gave me confidence to move forward and think big and I particularly appreciate being challenged with interesting questions that helped bring new perspectives to the project.”
Magda Lorenzo, Founder of The Commuting Book
