Expertise.

Trust Law.

Asset and estate planning can often be complex and emotional. As families and circumstances change, so does the need to regularly review and update the structures and documentation in place.

Our commercial team understands how business works in New Zealand and we are focused on practical and workable solutions for your business.

Property Law.

Not all property transactions are the same but it is important to us that every client receives the same efficient and practical advice customised to their particular conveyance.

Employment Law.

We provide a broad range of employment law services and are focused on providing strategic, pragmatic and cost-effective advice to employers.

Testimonials.

“We have been super happy with Davenports since moving across a couple of years ago. We have used Davenports for a range of things including restructuring family trusts, setting up a business, wills, and conveyancing. They have given us really good practical advice, respond promptly to our enquiries, and have gone the extra mile when needed. We highly recommend Tammy and the team”

"The team at Davenports Law are extremely professional and a pleasure to deal with. They have assisted our business across a range of legal matters (HR, Health & Safety, Contracts, Employment Law) and also provided assistance on Trust Law. Everyone I have interacted with has been very thorough and the follow up is always excellent."

Natasha Bourke - Skin Health Experts

"From the first contact to the last email Davenports made our experience a pleasure, not only helpful and informative but efficient with competitive rates. The staff were all lovely to deal with and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. Keep up the great work!"

Amie Bunt

"Every experience with the firm has been really positive. In this latest dealing with Bronwen she assured me at the outset that opposing counsel had quite a reputation - but no match for her. She was right. But in the loveliest way. I hoped for solid and professional advice. I got all that as well as empathy, strength, really good judgement, but also the feeling of a problem shared. I am very grateful to Bronwen for achieving the best possible outcome."

"A truly professional and caring team who will deliver the best quality service to get a result that is in their clients best interest"
