New Zealand’s largest legal resource is now online

New Zealand’s largest legal resource is now online

Just launched, Findlaw.co.nz offers a free searchable database of 1500 New Zealand law firms.

Featured on the site, Find a Lawyer allows the public to search for a firm, or individual lawyer, by legal issue, name and location. In addition, Learn About the Law provides articles written in plain English and is a starting place for help in understanding the legal issues people may have, such as property transactions, divorce and child custody, wills and probate, debt recovery and criminal charges.

With over 100 years experience of providing legal information in New Zealand, Thomson Reuters goal is for Findlaw.co.nz to become the leading internet resource for information on lawyers and law firms for New Zealand consumers. The FindLaw model was originally developed in the US and has since extended to both the UK and Australia where it has quickly become the number one destination for people wishing to find and engage lawyers.
