Chen Palmer is delighted to have been awarded the top Public Law firm of the year award at the New Zealand Law Awards ceremony in Auckland tonight. The New Zealand Law Awards depend on client feedback on the excellence of service, advice and outcomes.

This year, Chen Palmer completed a nationwide expansion, with the firm staffing offices in both Wellington and Auckland. That has been successful and the firm has grown in size, reach and influence.

“The Public Law firm of the year award is a recognition of Chen Palmer’s successful expansion. We are now located in the heart of Auckland’s CBD and a stone’s throw away from the Beehive, delivering results for clients across the country on a wide variety of issues”

“Chen Palmer has been in growth mode. We have expanded our team, hiring top new talent and building the expertise that Chen Palmer’s lawyers bring to the complex legal issues we advise on”. We have also celebrated internal promotions. The firm now has a new partner, 3 Principals, 3 Senior Associates, 3 Intermediate Associates and 10 associates and law clerks. (See the team below)

Next year Chen Palmer will be celebrating its 20th anniversary as New Zealand’s leading public and employment law firm, with over two decades of navigating the challenging crossroads between government and business.

Chen Palmer specialises in public law, litigation, employment law, education, central and local government relations, environmental law and the RMA. The Public law firm of the year award recognises Chen Palmer’s strong performance in these areas, and the firm’s ability to provide fast and effective solutions to our client’s legal challenges.

Chen Palmer was Australasia’s first specialist public law firm and it has since added a growing employment law practice. In September 2013 Chen Palmer was also awarded the prestigious Australasian Lexis Nexis Innovation award, in recognition of its unique and innovative approach to open sourcing public law. Chen Palmer was the only New Zealand firm to be included in the Index.

The top Public law firm award comes in addition to the top public law firm award that Chen Palmer has received in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011, and the 2010 Premier New Zealand Law Award for best Boutique Law Firm.
