Prestige Law announces merger with Meredith Connell

Prestige Law has announced its merger with Meredith Connell.

Auckland-based Prestige Law specialises in cross-border and cross-cultural litigation and disputes resolution, “serving a demographic of New Zealand that is in desperate need of high-quality legal services,” the firm said. Last year, it was named one of New Zealand’s most innovative law firms by NZ Lawyer.

Over the last 10 years, Meredith Connell has been growing its presence as a litigation-specialist firm in the country, providing litigation services across all practice areas. The firm boasts a massive roster of lawyers across its offices in Auckland and Wellington.

With the merger, Meredith Connell brings in Prestige Law’s bilingual team to enhance its offering.

“Prestige Law’s bilingual lawyers and team members will join Meredith Connell to provide a much stronger and higher quality legal service for cross-border and cross-cultural litigation and disputes resolution and be able to draw on a wider pool of colleagues from the wider Meredith Connell team,” Prestige Law said.

The merger took effect on Wednesday last week.

Meredith Connell serves as the Office of the Crown Solicitor in Auckland. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit New Zealand in March, the firm said that it expected demand for legal services to increase.
