Leading Experts

Our firm has a market reputation as New Zealand’s largest and leading specialist firm in our areas of legal expertise.

This is demonstrated by our:

  • substantial public and private sector client base
  • regular appointment to nationally significant projects
  • peer recognition – we provide expert advice to local and overseas lawyers, and our lawyers are regularly cited in the media and in legal guides 
  • our prominent position on the "All of Government" external legal services panel


Why a specialist firm?

Our partners and senior lawyers have all enjoyed successful careers in New Zealand’s leading large law firms. Their move to a specialist firm was a natural progression for their careers.

Another compelling factor was the opportunity to create a relaxed and friendly environment with sufficient resource and a culture enabling our lawyers to work:

  • with the freedom of a “long term” client relationship focus
  • in a straightforward and collaborative way
  • with flexibility and innovation, and
  • delivering only the services that give true benefit to clients.

Core values

Our four core values are to:

  • consistently apply legal expertise and commercial acumen in an accessible and personable manner
  • enjoy working with our clients
  • have a long-term, flexible approach to build lasting relationships with clients and staff, and
  • provide a working environment that brings out the best in our people.


Our depth of resource and cost-effectiveness

With ten partners and a large team of senior lawyers, we can readily deploy the specialist resource needed to:

  • structure
  • consent
  • project manage
  • deliver
  • advise on projects and their funding across all sectors of the economy

As a specialist firm, we are able to work with flexibility and innovation to ensure that our clients' objectives are met on a basis that is both cost effective and commercial, without sacrificing quality.
