Your health is one of your most important assets. Between ACC and public health, New Zealand has access to one of the best healthcare systems in the world. But sometimes, things go wrong. And the complex relationship between our legal and health systems can make it hard to know where to turn. That's where we can help.
Health Law

Our extensive expertise in health law enables us to provide fast, effective and practical advice tailored towards you and your specific circumstances - whether as a professional, or a patient. From medical negligence to ACC claims and any complex, sensitive legal issues that arise within the health sector, our team are here to help.

Professional Discipline and Regulation

Every day, we put our trust in various professionals to get the job done. From the lawyer drafting your will, to the accountant paying your tax, to the teacher who looks after your children - every day we trust our professionals. These professionals are regulated, to ensure this high level of trust is maintained. And when things go wrong, a professional regulator will respond. This is a scary and stressful time for both the professional involved and also the person who feels their trust has been broken. 

Our regulatory team has experience and expertise working both sides of this line - from complaint management, through to investigations and discipline.
