Vincent Naidu was a Commercial Partner in two well known Auckland law firms – a long established medium-sized CBD firm and a city-fringe boutique commercial & corporate firm. He now spends much of his time advising boards, negotiating and drafting contracts and assisting corporate clients in transactional, compliance, and other legal matters.
A large part of Vincent’s work involves advising not-for-profit organisations, including health and community trusts, charities, clubs, associations and societies, and religious institutions, many of which operate successful business ventures generating millions of dollars in revenue each year. He actively advises on strategic governance matters, and continues to work with a number of charities that are based internationally.
In the area of corporate governance, Vincent’s work involves advice on implementing and maintaining good governance processes, liability issues, effective decision-making, and membership issues. He actively works with clients on legal compliance and procedural matters, developing strategic plans and governance charters. He is often asked to advise boards on matters relating to autonomy, control, conflict of interest, authority to act, and powers of board members.
