Max Palzer(Nelson)

Lease Manager (Commercial)

Commercial Team

Max was lucky enough to grow up in the top of the south after his parents immigrated from Germany in 1988. The first port of call was Kaiteriteri before moving to the end of the road in Marahau where Max continues to live with his young family.

Between graduating with a Bachelor of Laws from Victoria University and joining Knapps in November 2020, Max chased summers splitting his time between the fjords of Norway and the equally beautiful Abel Tasman National Park working with boat charters in the tourism industry.

COVID rapidly altered his plans to have one more year overseas so with travel off the agenda, Max decided to bring forward his plans to settle down and to look for a legal position.

Max is now in part of the firms commercial lease team assisting landlords and tenants navigate their review dates and ensures their agreements are kept current. It is too early in his career for him to yet decide which practice area he may like to specialise in – he is just thrilled to finally be working in a law firm!

Max has a real passion for the Nelson/Tasman area – in particular anything connected with the sea and boats and just recently completed his skippers ticket.
