Change is here. And it's radical.

Our progressive mindset challenges conventions and evolves our global legal offering into broader advisory services and new business areas. Through our deep industry knowledge, technological solutions, and diversity of thought and experience, clients embrace change and seize opportunities.

We believe that great business can make a better world. It's a new world, with new client needs. Clients want strategic business partners that cross borders and geographies, they want global insight but through a New Zealand lens. We are helping clients succeed every day by providing innovative, commercially astute advice across every major sector and specialist practice, and our colleagues, across the globe, can be mobilised on your behalf at a moment's notice.

With New Zealand offices in Auckland and Wellington, we provide counsel to a vast range of private and public companies, ranging from New Zealand's most significant organisations through to the world's most renowned global brands.

Bold thinking and trusting relationships are at the heart of our work. When you engage with us, you will experience practical and approachable business partners who will collaborate with you to navigate the challenges ahead. Together, we can make business better.
