Duncan Cotterill was founded in nearby Lyttelton in 1857 and is intrinsically linked with the development of the city of Christchurch and the province of Canterbury. The Christchurch office has the largest number of partners and legal staff in the network, and is also the base for the management and administrative support teams.
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.
