Our advice and recommendations on strategy are tailored to the nature of the dispute and our client’s commercial objectives, i.e. whether a streamlined approach for debt collection matters, or comprehensive services in formal litigation.

We are experienced in administrative law and frequently advise public bodies and interested parties on process requirements.  Our advice is grounded and pragmatic.

Experience includes providing advice to local government relating to hearings, including the Resource Management Act 1991, Local Government acts, and on council meetings.  Advice is given on the prospect of judicial review, and we are experienced in both initiating and defending judicial review proceedings.  We also advise on policy development and legislative reform, including drafting bills, amendments, submissions to select committees and supplementary order papers, and on the drafting and jurisdiction of by-laws.
