Local and personal
We pride ourselves on our personal approach delivered locally to clients in Nelson and Tasman regions.
Outstanding track record
We usually resolve cases to our clients’ satisfaction without having to incur the expense of going to the Employment Relations Authority or to the Employment Court, but when we have needed to take that step, our results have been exemplary.
Our aim is to make employment law advice of the highest quality easily accessible to you.
We’re a firm of solicitors
Pitt & Moore is a firm of regulated employment law solicitors. Why is this important? Because many businesses and advisors without these credentials dispense employment law advice. They are not regulated solicitors.
What you get only with a solicitor
Solicitors must be admitted to the New Zealand Bar and have obtained a law degree though years of study at a university, and must maintain standards by completing a minimum amount of professional development or training each year.
Full regulation and oversight by the NZ Law Society
The Lawyers Standards Committee imposes and enforces very strict standards of professional conduct with regard to everything solicitors do.
This means that any legal advice given to you by a solicitor will not be seen by any court or tribunal. It is unlikely that any legal advice given to you by a non-qualified solicitor will be privileged in this way. This is a very important consideration, because without legal advice privilege you may need to disclose advice that may be negative to your case during legal proceedings
