Construction law is a relatively new field of specialist legal practice for New Zealand. Few local law firms can honestly call themselves construction law experts; Hesketh Henry is one that can. We are recommended internationally by the Asia-Pacific Legal 500 directory for ‘Real Estate and Construction’ and by AsiaLaw as ‘Recommended’ in construction law.
Our construction law team encompasses all levels of experience, from senior partners to junior lawyers. This means we can keep client costs down by allocating the most appropriate level of seniority to each task.
At partner level, our team members have international experience gained in the USA, UK and Ireland. Knowledge sharing is important to us and we regularly conduct in-house construction law training to ensure consistent high-quality representation for our clients.
We act for building and engineering consultants, contractors, specialist subcontractors, developers, and their insurers. Our clients include international and multinational companies, as well as local businesses.
