Immigration – Corporate Migration

Our team of specialist New Zealand immigration lawyers provide expert advice and representation to corporate clients located both inside and outside New Zealand, to manage the immigration needs of expatriate and domestic employees in a way that supports the needs of both the employer and employee.

Recognised as a leading corporate immigration service provider in New Zealand, we have the largest and most respected immigration practice operating out of offices located in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Queenstown. Our ability to provide service is not restricted to office location, we provide robust and practical advice on any immigration project, secondment or issue, irrespective of where the instructions are provided or where the employees are located.

Our unique mix of expertise in legal, consulting and industry experience, such as recruitment and human resources, means we think from a business and a legal perspective. Our advice and solutions are tailored to our clients’ needs, and retain a strong sense of commerciality.

Our immigration law team has a foundation of extensive experience and a comprehensive understanding and appreciation of the visa process from an applicant and sponsor viewpoint. We are uniquely positioned to understand the needs of the applicant and business/sponsor to develop strategic and practical immigration solutions.

We have been chosen to represent many of the world’s leading global organisations. Our clients come from a wide range of industry sectors, including construction, IT service providers, financial services, management consultants, oil and gas, and insurance and international recruitment companies.

Our experience lies in managing the end-to-end immigration process on behalf of our clients and their employees. We work with multi-national organisations with high-volume global mobility programmes moving hundreds of people into New Zealand on an annual basis, to provide a streamlined immigration process. We also support smaller or start up organisations with one-off or unusual scenarios that require a bespoke approach.

We have a growing understanding of the full scope of the global mobility process large corporates follow when transferring talent globally and the pressure points and key stakeholders within that process. Our focus is on delivering practical, cost-effective advice and support to make navigating the immigration process for you and your employees a straight forward and trouble free process.
