Fiordland National Park, Southland Dist., NZQCL have significant experience helping high net worth individuals and their families manage their wealth. We will assist you with personalised legal and financial solutions that reflect your status and individual needs. Queen City Law has recently assisted billionaires from Japan, Russia, China and Malaysia with assorted legal requirements in New Zealand. Some of these legal services have included Investor Plus ($10M) residence visas, importing of luxury vessels, the acquisition of multi-million dollar helicopters, the acquisition of inner city development sites and assorted other matters.

Several of Queen City Law lawyers are highly specialised in business migration and have probably acted on more successful business migration cases than any other law firm in the history of New Zealand and certainly since the inception of the Business Migration Branch in 1999. Queen City Law is pretty confident it has also acted on more successful $10 M Investor Plus applications than any other law firm in New Zealand also.Unlike licensed immigration advisors Queen City Law is able to nurture clients for life and some of its best commercial law or property and construction clients started off as immigration clients.

Aside from just assisting clients successfully navigate the immigration maze the firm is also able to ensure compliance with the 3 year conditional residency that issues under the 3 year Investor Plus ( $10 M ) term and try and ensure that the investments remain compliant in acceptable investments, remain in NZ in NZ$’s and so on. Clients are able to also utilise other lawyers in the firm for property , asset protection , estate planning and structuring, commercial , dispute resolution, taxation and virtually any other legal advice. QCL is also able to introduce good banking, accounting and other well qualified partners depending on what a client requires through its well established professional networks. Check out our services here.

So in this sense QCL has become a one stop legal shop to a number of international billionaires some of whom for example like pig hunting and motor boating in NZ and some of whom have made some significant investments in our marketplace with the firm’s support and legal guidance. QCL’s client-centric approach to the practice of law which has seen it win so many NZ and international Law Awards means that invariably all of these clients stick with the firm for all of their on-going professional instructions.

Our clients typically have a household income of at least $250,000 or investment assets of more than $750,000.

Your immigration and investment needs are as unique as you are and our expert legal teams work with you to provide a reliable and personalised service. Our lawyers will always seek to find innovative solutions to complicated situations to help you manage your immigration status, your investments, charity organisations and trusts. QCL can also help you put you in touch with local networks of professionals and individuals who can help you develop new sources of wealth for future generations in your new land.IMG_7137-200x300
