We are true experts in the field of New Zealand immigration law, having practised in the area and dealt with Immigration NZ for more than 15 years.

We have successfully helped thousands of clients gain residency in New Zealand or get out of a difficult situation with Immigration NZ. 

With our insight and experience in New Zealand immigration law and procedure, we are able to formulate a unique strategy that works for you. 

As a multi-cultural firm, we understand what it's like to go through an immigration and visa process, and unlike bigger law firms, each and every client will receive our personal attention.
