Areas of Practice

We've been giving great advice to Aucklanders

since 1924.

Rice Craig

We are a full service Law Firm, ready to help you!

We would start off by telling you that Rice Craig has been around since 1924 but that makes us sound old and fusty so we won’t. We’re in full colour over here!

We’re a full-service firm at Rice Craig, which means we can assist you with all your legal requirements. Our team of lawyers (who you can learn more about on the Our People page) are passionate about offering you the best service and quality advice around whatever area of law you need help with. And we try to deliver that in a language you understand, too, without too much jargon!

It might sound a bit Brady Bunch but we call ourselves the Rice Craig family and we operate a bit like one: we’re all in this together and we happily go the extra mile for each other and our clients. Once you’re on our books, you’re part of this family too – just ask the multiple generations who work with us, from grandparents to parents to grandchildren.

You won’t find glass offices and space-age furniture at our South Auckland offices – we’re more down to earth than that. We can talk rugby and netball as much as the next Kiwi and we’re always interested in what you’re up to. The law can be intimidating enough, right? We don’t think your lawyers need to be, too.

Our firm is small enough to care but large and diverse enough to deliver. Our awesome lawyers are skilled in a wide range of areas, including commercial law, litigation and disputes, property law, family law, wills & estate administration, employment law, criminal and traffic offence law, and estate planning and trusts.

Contact us now to see if we are the right local law firm for you or your business.

Rice Craig has experts all over the board!

A number of our clients are involved in agribusiness of some kind, from dairy, sheep and beef farmers to horticulture endeavours.

If you find yourself faced with criminal charges, you’ll be pleased to have access to our experienced Criminal Law Department.

We’ve been helping our clients with wills, estate planning and administration of estates since 1924 and we’re experts at it.

This is a constantly changing area of law that can be tricky to navigate for employers and employees alike.
