About Us

Why Choose Us?

We are a specialist commercial law advisory practice. Our goal is to provide top-tier legal advice in a client-focused and cost-effective manner.
Our priority is to help you achieve your business objectives.

At Morrison Mallett, we are...

Proactive — Our team at Morrison Mallett has a proactive mind-set. Rather than always being reactive to situations, we look to anticipate and identify potential issues and opportunities for our clients, and to find strategic solutions that benefit their businesses.

Strategic — At Morrison Mallett, we recognise the importance of carefully understanding our clients’ commercial and strategic objectives in order to better provide them with effective, timely advice. We take care to understand the commercial imperatives of all relevant parties in order to provide effective solutions that are feasible, acceptable and sustainable.

Experienced — The partners of Morrison Mallett have earned an enviable reputation for their in-depth understanding of the major issues affecting New Zealand industry, including, in particular, the primary, aviation and renewable-energy sectors.

Perceptive — Clients derive added value from Morrison Mallett’s blend of legal knowledge and in-depth understanding of the commercial opportunities, realities and risks of modern business. This enables us to provide strategic and practical solutions that are carefully tailored
for each client. We are well regarded for our lateral thinking and problem-solving expertise.

Versatile — Morrison Mallett has the ability to harness a substantial breadth and wealth of collective team experience within the firm, as well as through our extensive network, to provide seamless, specific solutions for our clients. We are in the fortunate position of being able to assemble the most suitable team (including non-legal advisers where appropriate) to work on any
given task.

Incisive — Our primary objective is to provide our clients with clear and effective advice. We are well regarded for our ability to find solutions to issues and to deliver outcomes in circumstances where others have not been able to do so. Our extensive business network regularly enables us to deliver solutions that exceed client expectations.


Value for Money

Our size and business model gives us unfettered flexibility with respect to fee arrangements. As a matter of course, we look to agree fees prior to undertaking any new engagement and our preference is to agree an estimate prior to commencing any material pieces of work. Our hourly rates are available on request and are intentionally structured so as to provide our clients with the benefits that flow from our low overhead structure. Our rates are extremely competitive relative to the market.

 

Our Associations

We maintain strong relationships with other law firms and leading barristers; this gives us the ability to efficiently obtain specialist advice in areas in which we do not practice, when circumstances require this (including, in particular, with respect to tax, employment and resource management). Through such associations, we are able to provide our clients with a seamless, full service offering with a single point of contact.
