We’ve been a leading law firm for more than 90 years, with permanent offices in both Christchurch and Queenstown. We employ 17 Partners and more than 80 staff. We have the capacity and the depth to complete any project as required.
We act for clients on transactions throughout New Zealand in all significant areas of legal advice. For international transactions we are the only New Zealand law firm member of Integrated Advisory Group International – a worldwide network of professionals which allows our clients to have access to carefully audited law firms in all major centres of commercial activity worldwide. We have the people and the experience to handle all of your legal matters with certainty.
Our firm is intentionally structured differently to most other law firms in that we genuinely operate under a specialist model.
Each lawyer in our firm works in a separate specialist team which means that our lawyers work in their own areas of expertise and collaborate with other experts to ensure that our clients receive immediate and thorough advice.
Our ten specialist teams include:
• Resource Management;
• Property & Construction;
• Relationships; and
The combination of passion for an area of law, focused practice on legal work only in that area and a desire to increase expertise through continuous learning provides our clients with outstanding advisors.
The size of our team also means that there is always more than one expert available to assist at any time. When clients come to us with a particular problem we will often get an expert from several different teams to review the problem and provide advice from this area. This results in fast accurate through advice to our clients.
We put the client first. We understand that our success depends on the clients’ success and not the other way around. Every operational change we make must result in better client advice and service or it does not get made. We have won numerous awards as a result of our long term focus on client service – including Law Firm of the Year in the New Zealand Law awards. We are passionate about our firm and in our ability to deliver outstanding results for our clients.
