We are committed to Human rights and our experience in this field allows a comprehensive approach which covers the District, High, Appellate and Supreme Courts and if necessary representation to the United Nations Commission on human rights. Very few law firms can do all this in house at a reasonable cost – we can and do.
This area of law provides our passion, inspiration and drive because it is not only the philosophy of the firm but to us represents the evolution of law.
The Family is the most important area of human life but like freedom and air we only recognize its importance when it is gone. The importance of substantive and procedural rights is of great importance yet surprisingly often we are instructed in matters where the rights of families and children have been breached by the state or even [“on occasion”] by the family court itself.
The firm takes instructions in all areas of commercial law. The experience of our barristers in various jurisdictions creates an approach inspired by an international approach to commercial practice often involving novel solutions to complex legal problems.
Over the years we have represented litigants in complex tort litigation, contract issues, insolvency disputes, matters involving financial reporting at violations and many others.
We have been engaged to draft statements of claims and pursue claims and defences against banks, government departments, wealthy individuals, newspapers, and large public or charitable trusts.
Our approach to commercial law and litigation combines the thorough approach and quality of large firms with the cost effective approach of using independent barristers giving you the best of both worlds.
We have an extremely high success rate in s106 applications (discharge without conviction) for matters of a less serious nature where there are explainable circumstances. This is because we go the extra mile in drafting detailed submissions on the evidence and the law and argue vigorously for our client. Often a conviction in a minor matter can literally ruin a persons life for example in immigration a conviction automatically means citizenship will not be granted, in certain jobs such as banking and finance a conviction entails a loss of a career. Because we care, we often succeed.
Proper work in this area requires a fundamental understanding of public law, international instruments and common law as well as the peculiarities of the immigration procedure and practice.
We specialise in business and invest immigration (LTBV and Investors Categories) and complex immigration cases.
We have even conducted numerous cases in the most challenging area of all – the removal of overstayers.
In a number of ground breaking cases involving attempts by New Zealand Immigration to remove overstayers with New Zealand children we have broken new ground by including the children as plaintiffs and pleading the international human rights treaties ratified by New Zealand.
