About three years ago, in his message to the guests at a dinner hosted by Indian Law Practitioners of New Zealand, Governor General Sir Anand Satyanand paid tributes to the legal profession with a specific reference to legal practitioners of Indian origin.
“This is a reflection, not only of the increase of New Zealand’s Indian citizenry, but also of our country’s growing diversity. I believe that lawyers from the country’s Indian community can play a key role in assisting New Zealand’s legal system as it grapples with how to accommodate differences and values of those new to this country. Those with a legal background also have much to offer in assisting community groups by showing civic leadership in serving on local authorities and school boards,” he had said.
The Indian community today can be proud of its lawyers, solicitors, barristers and other members of the legal profession.
One of the most important attributes of a law firm is its ability to understand the need of people and provide them with quality and impeccable service.
Good firms also choose their clients carefully to add value to their relationship.
