Hesketh Henry’s heavyweight experience in the aviation, marine, and land transport sectors make us a natural choice for progressive and successful providers who are in the market for a specialised logistics law firm.
The transportation of materials and products is fundamental to the health of New Zealand’s economy and the smooth functioning of core industries. New Zealand depends heavily on transport networks that link our ports, cities, towns and rural communities, so the effective planning and delivery of rail and road infrastructure projects is essential for the nation’s economy. These projects always require legal input, which demand expert knowledge of transportation law in New Zealand.
Hesketh Henry’s logistics law expertise helps to keep things moving efficiently and cost-effectively by protecting the reputation, reliability and financial viability of companies operating in the logistics and transport sector.
We work closely with freight and logistics operators to review contracts and agreements, draft terms and conditions, resolve disputes and advise on insurance claims. Our logistics lawyers work with transport-related businesses operating in domestic and international markets, across all modes for the carriage of cargo – air, sea, road and rail, and in relation to the warehousing / storage of goods.. Transportation of goods can be complex, involving multiple handlers and different jurisdictions. Contractual arrangements need to carefully drafted. Efficient processes for logistics claims and speedy resolution of disputes are also crucial.
In addition to law services directly related to logistics, we can assist with other areas of law – such as health and safety, employment, mergers and acquisitions, property – to provide one-stop shop convenience.
