The Best Lawyers in New Zealand Awards
For its 15th consecutive edition, New Zealand is celebrating the launch of its esteemed Best Lawyers awards with The Best Lawyers in New Zealand™ 2024.
Each year, Best Lawyers uses our Purely Peer Review® methodology, a combined effort that includes nominations, outreach, voting and research to determine the most illustrious legal talent around the world.
