This country has an awesome reputation for our entrepreneurship and start-ups, but many lawyers don’t have the understanding of what it takes to make it as an entrepreneur, or what skills are needed. They also don’t have the technology to assist at the ‘pointy end’ of this venture. 

At Fortune Manning they know your type, and they love working with highly energised individuals looking to make things happen. If you are a start-up, new business, an entrepreneur or looking at investing in a business, it is imperative that your lawyer understands this fast paced environment where things need to happen quickly and effectively.

Fortune Manning understand that start-ups are not cash rich; that there are pressures from all around, and the last thing you need is lawyer that is stuck in the past. If you are looking at starting out, you need to know there is often no turning back the clock – whether it’s in relation to a transaction, investment or arrangements you thought you had made with your fellow founder.

Unwinding things is difficult, expensive and sometimes impossible, therefore documentation and structuring is critical from day one. Technology has left many of their peers behind, and it is imperative that your advisor knows that technology is changing daily, and that you need to make decisions quickly. The Fortune Manning advisor will be in your corner because they have experience in technology and start-ups. They also know the issues, and understand you and your business.

They can assist with privacy policy, terms of user, intellectual property, founder agreements, seed investment, subscription agreements, due diligence and convertible loans, and for more information on Funeral Trust Funds NZ, Relationship Property Act NZ, Powers of Attorney and Estate Planning please go to
