Health and Safety

We are specialist health & safety lawyers providing expert advice and representation to our clients throughout New Zealand. We advise and represent our clients on all aspects of health & safety law both inside and outside the Courtroom.

Our specialist health & safety lawyers understand the complexities posed by current and proposed legislation, which means we will give you practical, robust and innovative legal advice enabling you to make sound occupational safety decisions for your business.

Our diverse range of clients includes state sector organisations, regional and local authorities, multi-nationals, membership organisations and SMEs from a wide variety of industries. Our work in the tourism, transport, agriculture, building, manufacturing, finance and insurance sectors is widely recognised and highly valued.

We enjoy working with our clients, where we get to understand what it is that works for their business from a safety perspective. We support our clients to ensure they have robust and practical health and safety systems in place and, if a notifiable event was to occur, they are properly represented at interviews under caution and in the prosecution process.

Our clients value the way we are decisive, opting to provide proactive advice and representation to ensure we achieve the best outcomes for them. Our strength is enhanced by working with our clients and WorkSafe to ensure full and appropriate representation.
