The Team at Peter Ansley Legal is known for its legal expertise and personal dedication to client interests. We combine an in-depth knowledge and understanding of commercial and property law with its practical application. We work hard at finding solutions that work best for our clients.

We are accomplished, and have distinguished ourselves through our successful representation of businesses large and small based in New Zealand and internationally. We regularly deal with New Zealand’s major law firms when acting for our clients on highly complex transactions.

We provide our clients with the essential continuity – in more than a few instances, going back over decades – in our knowledge and understanding of their legal affairs.

Our clients face challenging issues on a daily basis, and they count on us for sound and pragmatic advice, fast turnaround, efficient representation and reasonable fees. We go the extra mile to help our clients achieve their objectives and ensure we deliver results. 


We focus on providing pragmatic and timely advice, addressing the key contractual risks for our clients. We take a plain English approach to drafting, to clearly document the agreements our clients have made. Our role is to advise and support our clients in respect of their ventures.
