What Makes Caudwells Lawyers different?

  • Japanese Language  One of our Solicitors is fully fluent in speaking and writing Japanese.

  • Quality control Caudwells has a strong commitment to quality and have achieved ISO 9001 Certification.

  • Our Clients Caudwells acts for a wide range of Japanese and New Zealand business and individual clients.  These include partnerships, small businesses such as restaurants and import/export companies, large multinational companies government agencies and trade and professional organisations.

  • Trust  Our clients continue to come back to us because they trust us to achieve the best result and give them peace of mind.

  • Our Prices  Our size is an advantage in the way we price our services.  We are large enough to provide expert coverage of all aspects of the law but not so large as the “mega-law firms,” and therefore we have lower overheads and more flexibility with the prices we charge.  We find that our hourly charge out rates are around 40% lower then the rates for equivalent services from Wellington or Auckland law firms.
