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.

“Laurent Law came to us highly recommended”
Laurent Law came to us highly recommended by our counsel to help us navigate a complex immigration matter for our family from South Africa. From the very first meeting with James Turner, we were put at ease with his knowledge, expertise and experience in dealing with difficult cases. We cannot recommend Laurent Law highly enough for their professionalism, taking time to know your unique situation and for the very personal touch they provide…. If you require expert immigration advice from a team with a proven and trustworthy track record, from our experience, Laurent Law exceeded our expectations and with successful outcome for our family.

We are extremely grateful to Sahar for successfully handling our difficult case. She was responsive, knowledgeable, and patient. Going above and beyond, Sahar reached out and ensured my employer’s continued support, a vital element in our immigration process. We could not have asked for better representation. Thank you, Sahar, and thank you Laurent Law.

“He would certainly be my first choice…”
I was introduced to Simon by another lawyer who told me that I should ‘contact Simon – there is ‘nothing he doesn’t know about immigration in New Zealand’. To be honest, I have no idea if that is true – but what I do know is that; 1) he has always been able to answer my questions 2) has never had to ‘retract’ – because he later discovered ‘something else’. But beyond ‘knowing his stuff’, I also found Simon helpful, available, quick to respond and generally on top of the entire process. He would certainly be my first choice for anything that crops up in the future.

“I can’t think of any better Lawyer to deal with”
I had battled with immigration issues for more than a decade without success, this made my case very complex. I even reached out to a big law firm, but they said that I didn’t have any avenue to stay in New Zealand legally. All that changed when I approached Laurent Law. Throughout the whole process, they were honest, had a real drive to present my case to the best of their ability, and I felt that they cared about my situation. I can’t think of any better Lawyer to deal with immigration issues than them.
