Covid 19 Update
New Zealand is now at Alert Level 4 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. You can phone us or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance. At Alert Level 4, there are restrictions to keep everyone safe, prevent interaction with customers and help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Thank you for understanding.
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.

"We are so excited to finally be residents of NZ "Dear Simon, James and Team. We are so excited to finally be residents of NZ and would like to take this opportunity to thank you. We had twice been declined by INZ. We sent out an SOS on the Saffas Facebook group and your firm came highly recommended. I am so glad we contacted you. We experienced professional and friendly service from a team that cared without giving us false hope. I specifically want to mention that Simon and you fit us in during your lunch time on very short notice. We received the good news of the approval of our residency 5 weeks later. Your team rock!! We fully intend to use you for the permanent residency application.

Saurabh & 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 (clients 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.
SS & SC (Clients of Sahar Shamia)
"Thank you so much for all of your help"Thank you so much for all of your help. You guys are wonderful professionals. We will definitely be recommending you to anyone that asks and will come to you in future. Thanks again.
Shafiq (client of Sahar Shamia)
"Thank you for you all hard work"On behalf of Samina family I would like to thank you for you all hard work you did and you made it possible for the couples to get them together finally as they were refused by other lawyers to do this application. Before Laurent law accepted Assad application samina suffer a lot by living separated from her husband for 5 years so as children. Samina were speechless when heard the news and start crying and she couldn’t believe it. Once again from bottom of my heart would like to thanks Simon and specially Sahar Shamia. It’s been pleasure working with you and Laurent Law.
AS (client of James Turner)
"We were very thankful to have him as our lawyer"James is very patient and detail-oriented, and helped my family and I greatly through our INZ cases. He was always available to answer our questions, and remained very professional and knowledgeable throughout the entire process. He listens to your needs and concerns and takes them into account when giving advice, which is so important, especially when dealing with sensitive and emotional cases such as Immigration. We were very thankful to have him as our lawyer and I would definitely recommend seeking his expertise if you are in need of INZ advice.
Aurora (client of James Turner)
"A team of professionals"Highly recommended. A team of professionals. On the recommendation of a lawyer friend, we used Laurent Law. James’ very professional lawyer’s letter and the large amount of legal evidence we continue to provide. Finally, the immigration officer has no way or reason to say no to our case. I hope our true story can help you. Similarly, if you encounter difficulties in submitting a spouse sponsored visa, you are welcome to ask me at any time, and I will recommend this lawyer to you. Thank you, James.
