About Nicola Fraser

Nicola, a senior member of Taylor Shaw's commercial team, is strongly client focused with an eye for detail. She uses her expertise to support her clients to find practical solutions for their legal transactions. Nicola makes the law more accessible by ensuring she is responsive to her clients needs and they know more than just 'where to sign'.

Nicola was admitted to the legal profession in 1985 and practiced in commercial and property law in both Christchurch and London. She then went into business with her husband, operating a successful farming enterprise in North Canterbury which they continue to run together.

Joining Taylor Shaw in 2007 marked her return to the practice of law where Nicola has brought a wealth of practical knowledge and experience in the establishment and operation of a business. 

"I think it's important that people set up their business carefully. A vital part of my role is to provide my clients with quality advice and ensure they fully understand how the legal process works."

Nicola provides advice in a broad range of commercial matters including:

  • Commercial and residential property
  • Transactions
  • Company structure and formation
  • Shareholders Agreements
  • Business acquisitions
  • Joint ventures
  • Franchises
  • Partnership Agreements
  • Trust creation and administration
  • Elder law
