Bell Gully

Bell Gully 1

The firm has a long pedigree as one of the leading firms in the country, celebrating its 176 year anniversary in 2015, and represents some of New Zealand’s largest corporates.


The firm has worked hard to throw off its shackles as a largely male-dominated domain with an overly traditional view of what it is to be both a lawyer and, more significantly, a Bell Gully lawyer.

Offering quality work, supervision, flexibility and career progression, the opportunities are there . . so are the hours.
