DLA Piper is the first global, business law firm operating in New Zealand. We have national coverage through our two offices in Auckland and Wellington, which includes 24 partners, 80 lawyers and 42 support staff. We can call on the services of our colleagues around the globe, at any time, with specialist advice and international best practice to draw on.
We are leading the legal services market in recognising and responding to the changing needs of client organisations as they become increasingly global or influenced by global trends.
We advise international clients doing business in New Zealand, and those New Zealand organisations doing business elsewhere, offering seamless service in all major regions and key markets. Across every major sector and specialist practice, we provide innovative, commercially astute advice to organisations and businesses already operating in, or considering entry into, the New Zealand market. As a local firm, we support clients that are government entities, public organisations and privately-owned businesses, which are focused on New Zealand, providing in-depth local knowledge, networks and the best advice for the New Zealand context.
Our approach to providing legal services is to offer cost effective and quality advice with a focus on achieving our client's desired commercial outcomes while safeguarding and promoting our client's interests. We focus on forming long-term bonds with our clients, truly understanding their businesses and providing value for money.
Building strong client relationships is the compass for our business strategy and future development. This sets us apart. We attract the best talent, who want to work for a firm that is client and people focused, with access to international expertise and opportunities.
We have prepared a Guide To Doing Business In New Zealand to help those venturing into the New Zealand market navigate their way through local legislation to identify and maximise the many opportunities that are available.
