Following the success of our hubs in Christchurch Ōtautahi and Tauranga, we are pleased to announce W+K is opening its third New Zealand office in Christchurch Ōtautahi.

Our new office will be open for business on 4 September 2023. The local team will include senior lawyer, Laura Glasson, and Joseph Lill, who is joining the firm as a Special Counsel. Joseph specialises in statutory liability claims, including health & safety prosecutions. Laura and Joseph (both born and raised in the South Island) will shortly be joined by four new team members who are at the senior associate, associate and graduate levels.

Our expansion into Christchurch provides a local solution for our South Island clients and is the next chapter in our growth story as the largest specialist insurance and dispute resolution law firm across Australia and New Zealand. The Christchurch Ōtautahi office is W+K’s ninth office and its third new location in the last year.

The new office is based in the heart of the CBD at 235 High Street, Christchurch, Ōtautahi 8011.
