An employment lawyer is someone who has a tertiary law degree (undergraduate or higher) and who is a current practising lawyer (i.e. they also have a current practising certificate from the New Zealand Law Society).  Many of our advocates also have law degrees and have worked as lawyers.  Some of our advocates have many years’ experience in HR / employment law sectors.  Some of our advocates are also qualified mediators. For more information about mediators and private mediation, please click or
