Firm Overview:

Simpson Grierson is one of New Zealand’s leading commercial law firms, and also one of the largest. We have over 330 staff, including 48 partners and more than 180 legal staff, in our Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch offices.

We are a full-service law firm and proud of our reputation for providing expert, yet practical, advice across all areas of commercial law. We are a “plain English” firm.

We are a firm of specialists. Our clients do not receive employment advice from a general commercial litigator, construction advice from a property lawyer, or tax advice from a mergers and acquisitions specialist. Our large size means we can resource our teams with specialist lawyers in every commercial area. We work to attract and retain talented people to support this approach.

We have excellent international connections. We are New Zealand’s only member of Lex Mundi, the world’s leading association of independent law firms. We are a co-founder of the Pacific Rim Advisory Council. Our partners include members of the International Bar Association and the Inter-Pacific Bar Association.
