About us

Simpson Grierson is one of New Zealand's leading full service commercial law firms, and also one of the largest.

We have over 330 people, including 47 partners and more than 180 other legal staff, in our Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch offices.

How we help our clients

Our business is shaped around the needs of our clients.

We have specialist lawyers in all areas of commercial law, and this is reflected in how we work. This means, for example, clients do not receive employment advice from a general commercial litigator, construction advice from a property lawyer, or tax advice from a mergers and acquisitions lawyer.

More so than other firms, we have strong teams in specialist areas such as intellectual property, employment, and health and safety. Increasingly we are also complementing our legal advice with consultancy services.

We have excellent international connections. We are New Zealand's only member of Lex Mundi, the world's leading association of independent law firms. We are a co-founder of the Pacific Rim Advisory Council.

How we support our people

We understand the value of a truly inclusive workplace and champion diversity. We are already recognised as a leader in this area, and we are working hard to improve performance and outcomes.

In 2014 we became the first organisation in New Zealand to be awarded the Rainbow Tick, and in 2017 we won the Supreme Award at the White Camellia Awards (honouring businesses promoting gender equality through the United Nations Women's Empowerment Principles).

More information can be found on our diversity and inclusion page.

How we support our communities

We take our responsibility to the communities we live in seriously.

Our particular focus is to work with youth, helping them develop their full potential. We are proud to provide long-term support to organisations such as Youthline, our main community partner.

We also invest significantly in providing pro bono services to community groups.
