Simpson Grierson
Member firm for New Zealand

Firm Overview

Simpson Grierson is one of New Zealand’s largest and leading commercial law firms. We have over 400 staff, including 48 partners and more than 220 lawyers, in our Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch offices.

We are unique in that we are a firm of specialists with a proud reputation for providing expert, yet practical advice and service delivery second to none. Our specialist structure means 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 enables us to provide teams of specialist lawyers in every commercial area. We attract and retain talented people to support this approach.

Our commitment to clients extends beyond the delivery of excellent legal advice. We also work with clients on the strategic issues driving their business and assist them with maximizing revenue growth opportunities. Our focus is on helping our clients succeed.

As one of New Zealand’s leading law firms, we are also the most globally connected. Many of our partners are members of the International Bar Association, and our close ties with major U.K. firms has gained us a proven track record with leading global organizations. We regularly act on complex cross-border transactions and have a significant portfolio of international clients.
