Directory of Lawyers in New Zealand

Now here’s a tip for finding a lawyer in New Zealand.

Try this website of the Auckland District Law Society


There is a tab at the top that says “find a lawyer”

Click here then use the search functions to search lawyers

by lawyer type, surname, town, or district within New Zealand.

The New Zealand Law Society also has a useful web page.

You can Google search using this keyword phrase to see.

There is also a directory of lawyers put out by Brookers

So you will need to visit this url: http://brookers.co.nz

A directory like this is useful if searching for addresses

to post a sales proposal or a mail out to many lawyers.

Alternatively you can use the NZ yellow pages or the

NZ white pages in the telephone directory:
