Christchurch - A vibrant and prosperous 21st century city in the making

This was the very first Duncan Cotterill office which was established in 1857. The firm remains the largest in Christchurch, and works with commercial and private clients throughout the South Island.

Alongside the work we do for individuals, the firm focuses on the primary, insurance, property and construction sectors and foreign investments. Our multi-disciplinary team (property, construction, litigation, urban planning, health & safety and employment) is ideally placed to work with local, national and international investors, developers and project management companies as the city rebuilds.

We have an in-depth understanding of the agribusiness sector having advised dairy, forestry and large landowners over many years. Our extensive Overseas Investment Office experience also means we have the capabilities that overseas companies and individuals will need as they look to take advantage of investment opportunities in a resurgent Canterbury.
