Profile

Myles specialises in transactional banking and restructuring.  He has extensive experience on corporate transactional banking and property finance and also advises financiers and insolvency practitioners on distressed debt solutions and enforcement of security.

Myles spent over five years on various secondments at Bank of New Zealand (BNZ) working closely with a range of departments within BNZ. These secondments have provided Myles with long-term first-hand experience of the issues that affect financial institutions, of how financial institutions function, and the interaction of various stakeholders within a financial institution.

Myles has also assisted banks with major projects such BNZ's response to the Christchurch earthquakes and, more recently, assisting the banking industry to develop funding solutions for customers in body corporates facing building remediation issues.
