Lane Neave is recognised as one of New Zealand’s leading law firms.

A full-service law firm located in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Queenstown, Lane Neave is led by 24 partners and employs more than 135 staff nationwide.

We thrive on making complex issues simple for our franchisee and franchisor clients. We do that by providing plain English advice that doesn’t sit on the fence.

how can we help?

Our specialist corporate lawyers can assist franchisees or franchisors on all franchise matters.

Talk to us if you are:

  • Entering into a new or existing franchise agreement

We make it our business to get to know you, to listen and understand your requirements and to provide advice that fits your particular set of circumstances.

why should you seek advice?

At Lane Neave we provide the legal capability of a large firm, with the necessary depth of resources, intellectual capacity and commercial pragmatism that delivers results.

Our competitive charge-out rates position Lane Neave with the affordability of a mid-sized firm, delivering value to clients on all work completed, making us a great firm to partner with.

Our clients also receive the availability and attention of partners, or lawyers at the appropriate level if necessary, allowing us to deliver on our trusted relationships, similar to that of a boutique firm.

Most of our lawyers specialise in specific areas of the law and many have become recognised experts in their chosen fields. However, everyone embraces a ‘team’ approach, which gives us a strength in depth across the whole spectrum of the law.

Our partners work directly with our clients on a day to day basis. The insight from getting to know clients and their business means we’re better able to help when it counts.

who do we work with?

As a full service law firm we act for businesses and individuals of all sizes, from one-man bands through to large corporates and not-for-profits. Our well-resourced team has won widespread recognition for advice on transactions of all sizes and complexity.
