More About Us

Queen City Law is a law firm specialising in commercial, property, property development, litigation and immigration law.

In November 2011 Queen City Law won the New Zealand Property and Construction Law Award again and previously the much coveted Premium Law Award as New Zealands Boutique law firm of the year.These awards are highly prestigious and reflects that of the 10,000 or so lawyers currently practising in New Zealand, Queen City Law has been performing at the top of its game. One aspect of these awards that is very pleasing for the firm is that they are based primarily on the support of the firms clients. This is of course the life blood of any law firm and the relationship Queen City Law enjoys with its client base is highly valued by the team at Queen City Law.

Remarkably Queen City Law won NZs Boutique Law Firm of the Year award 3 years in a row – 2007, 2008 and 2009.

QCL won Construction Law firm of the year in New Zealand in 2008 and 2009 and the combined Prendos Property and Construction Law Awards in 2010 and in November 2011.
