{mds} law > About us

Embrace thinking:

{mds} law is a medium sized specialist property and commercial law firm based in Christchurch, New Zealand.  We act for clients locally and nationally and also act for international clients with businesses or property in New Zealand as well as those looking to invest in New Zealand for the first time.
The firm provides a range of specialist advice to clients including company and business law, employment, finance, commercial and residential property transactions, relationship, property, asset protection including trusts, will and estate planning as well as estate administration.

Our approach incorporates a creative and pragmatic problem solving approach to our clients legal problems.  It’s what we call {embrace thinking}.

We assess client’s problems and create solutions that allow the client to move forward – a solution based on what the client can do to achieve its objectives, not what it can’t.

Our approach is also team focused. On an internal level we leverage off the expertise and skills of all members in the firm to provide creative, timely, cost effective solutions.

We also adopt a team approach with our clients ensuring responsibilities and timetables are clearly understood by everyone.

We work with many clients who embody this same {embrace thinking} philosophy.
