Auckland is now at Alert Level 3 lockdown until further notice. We are open for business but not for face to face contact. You can still consult with us via Skype/telephone or Zoom.

Immigration Specialists Since 1996
We have been doing New Zealand immigration for a long time. Why? Because it is really satisfying to help change people’s lives, by finding new ways to attack the problems that they bring to us. We love the many challenges of this work, which keep changing from week to week.
Getting to a solution sometimes calls us to use left-field thinking, going beyond the surface facts. We can’t always find the winning answer. But our track record of success shows that we don’t like to give up or to lose.
At Laurent Law we bring nearly 40 years of combined experience to the table. Let us put them to work for you.

"Thanks for your patience"Thanks for your patience during this time and for your assistance with the application and the further processes we undertook to get a favourable outcome for Ben.
"Thank you so much for your information and help!!!!"Waiting to hear some positive feedback from our case officer once she returns back to work. And by the way, I sent one of my good friends, Ruchira to see you. I just received a call from him and he is really happy with your service. Have a nice day !!!
"........nothing but experts"Difficult business to get a good rating, these guys are nothing but experts. It is not fair to give a bad rating based on NZ immigration decisions. These guys do the best they can and their advice is to the point and factual. Obviously not what everybody wants to hear.
Jeremy Sutton (Divorce Lawyer)

"Wow that was quick"Wow that was quick I did not expect a result so swiftly! Marvellous news and thanks for all the work you have done making this happen Sahar.
Investor (client of Simon Laurent)
"Thoroughly recommended"Thoroughly recommended. Extremely professional and experienced firm from initial assessment to final delivery. Simon and his team took on what should have been a straightforward application for residency investment visa. INZ went back 13 years into business history wanting details and explanations. Records were not available as they are disposed off after 7 years in our country. Simon was able to work with the scraps of information available from emails to make an excellent summary and understanding of the business history at that time and help educate INZ on a very specialized area of business transactions. We began to feel that we really were not wanted in NZ by INZ at many times and felt like giving up. Simon continued to battle our corner with great determination , accuracy and points of law. At no point were we asked for more funds as we would have expected from any other lawyer in the world. Simon honored his fixed price deal. Don"t bother looking anywhere else.
Corporate Client (of Sahar Shamia)

"Many thanks"I appreciate the speed with which we were able to get the consultation scheduled and the great advice we received from Simon and James.
Saurabh and Ravinder
"Woohoo! Yeeeeh."Thank you so much Sahar. We are really happy today. You have been such a great help.
"Very professional and knowledgeable team"Very professional and knowledgeable team. I applied for residency through them and the outcome was successful. The reason I got my residency even in this tough environment was because the firm and in particular James Turner (senior solicitor) was able to build the link between what I studied in NZ, my current job and my Indian work experience. It wasn't straight forward at all and I would not have been able to do it on my own. Nz immigration asked for all sorts of information from India going back 12 years. Some of this information wasn't even available. This is were their expertise and knowledge of NZ immigration came into play and in the end my residency application was approved. I would recommend them.
Bill & Pauline (client of Sahar Shamia)
"This is fantastic news"Thank you so much for all the work behind the scenes you have done for us. We are both very impressed on how well you understood what was required to get the visa. We will be recommending you to anyone needing an NZ Visa.
"Highly recommend their immigration service"Laurent Law guided me and my husband throughout our immigration journey from student visa to permanent residency. James Turner effectively dealt with complex Australian immigration background of my husband. Highly recommend their immigration service.
