Law firm Anthony Harper has announced the promotion of Rose Clements to the partnership.

Based in Tāmaki Makaurau, Rose specialises in retirement village and aged care law, acting for operators and statutory supervisors. With over 17 years’ experience practising law, Rose’s clients range from large corporates to smaller not-for-profits.

Managing partner Malcolm Hurley said that Rose’s promotion to the partnership reflects her expertise and in-depth knowledge of retirement village law.

“Since re-joining Anthony Harper, Rose has quickly re-established herself as an experienced retirement village law practitioner. She is already working closely with many of our key clients on the Government’s proposed changes to the Retirement Villages Act, which is currently open for consultation, and has significant implications for our clients,” he said.

Rose started her career at Burke Melrose (which merged with Anthony Harper in 2013) focusing on securities and retirement village law. She then spent over 10 years in the banking and finance team at Carey Olsen (in London and the Channel Islands) where she specialised in fund finance and real estate finance.

Rose also has expertise in ESG and sustainability and, prior to her return to New Zealand in 2022, acted for several European banks in connection with ESG/sustainability-linked loan facilities.
