As a specialist commercial property lawyer, Lane also dealt with aspects of commercial real estate such as acquisitions, disposals, due diligence, leasing, residential apartment/project development and funding, subdivisions, unit titles, and property development. In her practice, she has acted for some of the prominent landowners and developers in New Zealand.
