With several hundred New Zealand lawyers practising in London, several have also made their mark with success at the Bar, in major law firms, arbitration, in-house and others areas of practice in both private and public law.
The New Zealand Lawyers Society has between 300-400 New Zealand lawyers and many others live and work in the UK permanently or otherwise.
The common law jurisdiction means that most legal practice areas are readily transferable to the UK and the reputation of New Zealand lawyers in the UK is high.
For New Zealand lawyers moving to London there is the ability to start working immediately, with a high percentage of London lawyers working on a temporary contract basis, providing a quick-start opportunity before moving into a more permanent legal role.
But for the lawyers who remain and make London their home, there are a growing number of New Zealand legal stars making their name in the competitive London legal market.
