Meet the
Personal Law
We were returning expats, and as such this transaction required additional supporting evidence to meet the requirements of New Zealand's anti-money laundering legislation. Caen not only professionally assisted us to navigate our way through the legal requirements, but did so in a manner that was approachable, friendly and very patient.
