Over the 30 years of our experience we have had a number of cases reported in the New Zealand Law Reports and other New Zealand law reporting publications (such as the New Zealand Family Law Reports). We have also taken proceedings to the Court of Appeal regarding a claim against an insolvent company and a trust. We have had a successful claim for a substantial economic disparity payment in a relationship property matter. We have conducted many relationship property proceedings including difficult matter including tracing of assets held overseas.
In relationship property proceedings the Court of Appeal found in our client’s favour regarding a disputed liability and the legislation was amended to eliminate the ambiguity in the legislation that the case highlighted. We have had a number of reported decisions in the area of claims against deceased estates. We have had many defended civil hearings and summary judgment proceedings. We can help you recover money owed to you. We also understand that clients sometimes wish to have the opportunity to consider meetings and mediations in order to resolve disputes economically.
Recently we have been involved in disputes regarding claims against estates and trusts in the High Court, relationship property disputes involving complex issues including where trusts and companies are involved, spousal maintenance claims and economic disparity claims, arbitrations regarding cross-lease titles, building disputes settled by mediation and complex parenting disputes involving family violence allegations and parents who live in different jurisdictions.
