Chapman Tripp

As New Zealand’s leading full-service law firm, we have quite a reputation to live up to; it keeps us on our toes and motivates us to seek out ways to do things better and smarter. With constant change as the new norm, we help our clients to adapt and thrive by equipping them to respond to unpredictable market conditions, to navigate regulatory changes and to maximise the opportunities that emerging technologies bring.

Our approach to working with our clients is strategic, commercial and decisive. Listening to them and understanding their businesses allows us to deliver solutions-focused, sector-specific advice on corporate and commercial, property, construction, finance, tax, dispute resolution, environmental and government relations issues.

Our 53 partners and a legal team of more than 200 staff in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch, work on the largest, most complex and high-value transactions, projects and disputes in New Zealand. We play a key role in mergers and acquisitions, disposals, takeovers, financings, insolvencies, restructurings, banking, procurement processes, large scale infrastructure and PPP projects and dispute resolution proceedings.

Our clients increasingly need an integrated, cross-border service. We leverage the experience of our lawyers who have worked all over the world and our close links with the world’s best international law firms, to deliver seamless advice and local expertise.
