DLA Piper Wellington moves to new waterfront home

DLA Piper has relocated its Wellington office to a new waterfront home.

The firm’s new space is located at 20 Customhouse Quay, which also houses Big 4 firm Deloitte.

“Our move in Wellington is another exciting step in our firm's ongoing pursuit of excellence and innovation,” said Martin Wiseman, DLA Piper NZ’s managing partner.

The Wellington office utilises the same open-plan global office design applied to the Auckland branch, which also moved to a new location last year. The firm said that this design encourages “greater collaboration and apprenticeship,” since junior lawyers will be able to easily observe senior colleagues at work.

“Once again, we have created a world-class, technically sophisticated office environment which not only supports the firm’s strategic vision and values but is also a great – and better – place to work,” Wiseman said.

DLA Piper Wellington will be situated on level 4 of the 14-storey 20 Customhouse Quay building, which was designed by Studio Pacific Architecture. The building has been awarded a 5 Green Star “excellence” rating by the New Zealand Green Building Council, and ArchiPro called it “one of the safest structures to be standing in during an earthquake.”

Meanwhile, DLA Piper’s Auckland office can be found in Commercial Bay’s PwC Tower, where MinterEllisonRuddWatts and Chapman Tripp have also based their Auckland headquarters.
