New Zealand’s longest serving legal practice. We have provided trusted legal advice to many generations of Wellingtonians and aspire to continue this service for generations to come.
We give practical and timely advice. We assist and support our clients to achieve the best legal outcomes in an efficient manner. We are future focused.
With a tradition of over one hundred and fifty years of excellence, Treadwells is arguably the capital’s ‘go to’ law firm.
Our criminal and litigation lawyers have expertise in the full range of criminal matters.
We can provide expert assistance in establishing, maintaining and terminating employment relationships for both employers and employees, and provide timely advice on all aspects of employment law and health and safety.
The overlap between family law and other areas of law is increasing.
As a general practice firm we are well placed to advise and act for clients whose commercial, trust, or property activities have family law implications. We routinely advise on Property (Relationships) Act 1976 matters.
TRUSTS & ESTATE PLANNING
We act for and advise clients in respect of family, charitable, and private trusts. We regularly work with clients to create durable trust structures that protect personal assets from business and creditor risk and relationship property claims.
PROPERTY & FINANCE
Treadwells has extensive experience in all areas of property law, from residential conveyancing, to commercial leasing and acquisitions, and property development.
We recognise that many New Zealanders are passionate about owning property but that purchasing is a significant event that often requires considerable commitment.
CORPORATE & COMMERCIAL
Treadwells has a strong commercial law practice and acts for a large number of companies, agencies, and small to medium sized business.
LITIGATION & DISPUTE RESOLUTION
We provide pragmatic, and cost-effective legal and strategic advice focused on your best interests.
Litigation is not always the best means of resolving disputes and we can advise on a range of other options for dispute resolution, which can bring about a beneficial outcome without the expense and risk that accompanies litigation.
