Our Philosophy

“Whatever you are be a good one.”
Abraham Lincoln - Lawyer

We have learnt that every business and each individual’s set of circumstances are different, so we make time to understand each client’s particular needs and ways of working. We pride ourselves in effectively tailoring our service and approach to suit each individual. As a result we form strong, long lasting relationships with those who enjoy a personal one-on-one approach to their legal affairs.

Our ability to form strong, lasting relationships extends beyond our clients to our network of colleagues and other professionals. We realise that we cannot be experts in everything, so we have built robust connections with other legal experts, accountants, financial advisors and bankers, which allows us to provide a team approach. We will not give advice in areas in which we do not practise, but can recommend the appropriate person or firm for you to contact. We are not afraid to refer you elsewhere because your interests are paramount and we are confident that we have earned your loyalty.

Our charge out rate is within the medium range found in Wellington City. Some work can be quoted at the outset whereas others are charged out on a time basis. We encourage our clients to discuss charges at the beginning of each project and we will always keep you informed if we anticipate any cost overruns.
