The Firm


Anderson Lloyd is one of New Zealand’s longest-established law firms with offices in Dunedin, Christchurch, Queenstown and Auckland.

Providing a full range of legal services, the firm has 26 partners across its four offices and provides regular opportunities for lawyers to join the practice in its different divisions.

What the firm says –

Our clients are some of New Zealand’s leading businesses and we are involved in challenging and high profile legal work. You will have access to first-rate resources and leading technology and will be encouraged, mentored and developed to achieve your potential. We provide a genuinely collaborative culture – with teams working across offices to ensure we deliver the best results for our clients.

However, we like to think that we can offer you something a little different from other law firms. We have not lost sight of the important things. We want our people to look forward to coming to work and we openly encourage them to reach their own personal and professional goals. It’s our friendly environment, flexible work practices and our commitment to making sure that our staff are happy, healthy and enthusiastic that really sets us apart.

We are also part of our communities. We have active sustainability programmes, which promote environmentally sound practices, encourage diversity, and form partnerships that benefit our communities. We pride ourselves on our pro-bono work – and believe that providing pro-bono work is an essential element of every lawyer’s professional responsibility. Our people give their time, expertise and leadership to assist with a range of health, community, educational, environmental, heritage and recreational initiatives.
