Lowndes is a leading New Zealand full-service corporate & commercial law firm headed by recognised experts focused on what matters – the commercial outcome.

  • The firm comprises carefully selected teams of industry-leading specialists. Together they reinforce the firm’s reputation as a law firm with a strong sense of commerce.
  • Partners pride themselves on their ability to leverage the highest standards of professionalism and technical expertise with innovative commercial thinking and outstanding service. Meeting our clients’ needs by finding innovative solutions is the essence of our practice.
  • Our lawyers have backgrounds in large law firms both in New Zealand and overseas. Many also have degrees in business, accounting and management, and each has been drawn to Lowndes to focus on personally serving clients rather than running a large legal business.

  • Our commitment is the same whether the matter being handled is worth hundreds of millions of dollars or less than a million dollars. Lowndes counts amongst its clients some of the world’s leading corporations. We also advise larger SMEs, high net worth individuals and start-ups which will become some of the country’s future success stories.
  • The firm has an extensive international practice and maintains a network of trusted associates around the world to assist clients with business in virtually any commercial centre.
  • Lowndes has a strong management and quality assurance culture. We invest heavily in technology to achieve excellence and optimise the efficiency of our professional work.
