About Us

Rice Speir specialises in litigation and dispute resolution. We offer expertise in many areas of litigation, with particular emphasis on local government and insurance matters. We have a holistic outlook and work with our clients on ways to prevent disputes arising at all.

We are future focused. It is in our culture and our thinking. It drives us to seek out new ways to deliver solutions and value for our clients.

Our ability and expertise has received industry recognition. Our clients include the four largest Metro councils in New Zealand and, for the past three years, we have been a finalist in the Litigation and Dispute Resolution category at the New Zealand Law Awards.

Why Us

We know that a relationship is more valuable than an instruction and that’s why we listen to our clients. As not all solutions are the same, we always start with one question: what does success look like to you?

We provide answers where others might sit on the fence and that’s because our advice is proactive with a purpose.

Our macro view with micro focus gives us a full perspective of litigation. While ripping things apart, we never lose sight of the bigger picture and our client’s intentions.

Experience has taught us that collaboration achieves the best results. Together with our clients, we make the complex simple.
