Daniel specialises in banking and finance and has extensive experience working in New Zealand, the Asia Pacific and the Middle East.
He regularly advises on a broad range of domestic and cross border financing and infrastructure transactions from front end structuring and implementation right through to back end refinancing solutions, restructurings and insolvency.
In particular, Daniel has a focus on leverage and acquisition finance and projects and infrastructure.
"Daniel Collins regularly supports clients on acquisition and property finance matters, as well as on corporate finance mandates. He provides "great assistance in getting to the crux of any issues and providing solutions rather than just outlining the issue," according to one client."
"The Buddle Findlay team are forward thinking, great communicators and commercial in their approach. Daniel Collins and Paul Farrugia specifically displayed all of these attributes (and more!)."
