Alice and Suzanne have a real strength in listening- they have always given me practical advice tailored to whatever my circumstances at the time may be. Sorting out the legal side of property transactions is a chore, but they seem to be able to make it pain-free every time. They will be my go-to wherever I might buy property in NZ.


We have been represented better than I could have ever imagined. Our needs were put first and we were treated as a friend rather than a number. Our opinions were valued and our doubts were always reassured. My nerves were calmed and the process was always explained. Karen Wood went above and beyond and did everything she could do for a great outcome professionally in every aspect that we have dealt with her. Highly recommended.

Brad has been preparing our legal work DA & DG Keene Family Trust, Naki Developments Ltd and Darcy Keene Earthmoving Ltd for many years now and in this time we have found Brad to be very professional and obliging. We feel very relaxed in his company and hope we can continue doing business with Brad for many years to come.

I found [Priyaanka] an absolute pleasure to deal with. She made the whole process very straight forward - explaining each step as we went along. I trusted her judgement and found her answers to my questions easy to understand.
