Our People

We are not the kind of lawyers who serve at a “distance”. We like to form a “team” with our clients – and above all, we are friendly provincial people with a wealth of experience in law and in making people feel at ease.

We’re the kind of team who think differently about accountability, implementation and follow up, and we are always exploring new ways of delivering legal services that make our clients’ experiences even better. Our focus always starts with a full respect for what clients value and expect.

There is no culture of individualism or ego here – we are a real team with no prima donnas (except when required in the courtroom!) That means that whilst we are always seriously on the ball, we are really into spreading our positive vibe around. In 2014, we were finalists in the NZ Law Award as “Employer of Choice.” We are proactive around skills development training for all staff with a particular focus on management and leadership. It’s a happy place to be.
