The Panel is supported by a professional executive staff that consists of the Chief Executive (who is a lawyer), a General Counsel heading a specialist legal team of five lawyers, and two administration staff. 

The executive is available to assist with any questions about the Takeovers Panel and the Takeovers Code. Our email format is firstname.lastname@takeovers.govt.nz.  

Please note, however, that the executive does not provide legal advice. Any person who is concerned about compliance with the Takeovers Code is encouraged to obtain independent advice from an experienced legal practitioner.
