Testimonials
It is my pleasure to write a testimonial with regards to the nomination of the professional trustee team at Gilligan Rowe and Associates, as a finalist for New Zealand Corporate Trustee of the year. They have acted as a professional trustee for my trust for many year now. I have been thoroughly impressed by their level of knowledge, professionalism, honesty and integrity in all my dealings with them. In addition, through their regular client seminars that I have attended, I have been very impress by the thoughtful critiques of cases and changes in the direction of trust law, and their possible impact on me. I can recommend them without hesitation. Sincerely - BV
