About us

We are a specialist insurance and litigation firm with a strong client base of industry leaders, including both New Zealand and international insurers and reinsurers.

The New Zealand practice is one of four practices in the Asia-Pacific region and covers both the North and South Islands. We are renowned for our expertise in litigation and dispute resolution in insurance/reinsurance, construction, international trade - marine and aviation cargo and carrier’s liability, and real estate law.

We are regarded as leaders, not just because we have some of the most respected legal minds in their field - but because we know it's important to be practical, commercial and approachable.
