 International Networks

As one of the leading commercial law firms in New Zealand, Hesketh Henry has developed an excellent reputation for advising international clients.

Many of our lawyers are multi-lingual and over the years we have fostered a network of international contacts, including international corporations and offshore law firms.

Through membership of the following alliances and associations, we are able to facilitate legal services across many jurisdictions.

Hesketh Henry is the New Zealand member of the Global Advertising Lawyers Alliance - GALA. This is an alliance of lawyers located throughout the world with expertise and experience in advertising, marketing, trade marks and promotion law.

GALA provides a worldwide resource to individuals and corporations who wish to source answers to problems involving the complex legal issues affecting advertisers and marketers.

ADVOC is a global network of independent law firms which provides clients with commercially oriented services in whichever jurisdiction they need support. Each of the member firms is known and respected within its region and is committed to respond immediately to the needs of clients of other firms.

Each of the member firms has detailed information on the experience and special knowledge of all the member firms. This means that if your business is exporting or setting up shop in another country, you can quickly be connected to a reputable and knowledgeable lawyer 'on the ground' in that jurisdiction.

In addition to these organisations we have good relationships with several mainly Australian law firms and can quickly organise referrals to trusted allies in support of any Trans-Tasman legal requirements.
