What People are saying

Corsair Bay Dwelling

We engaged David Pedley and Paul Rogers to support and represent us through the process of a contested residential resource consent hearing. The quality of the legal advice and representation was extremely high. They listened well, and we appreciated their ability to frame up complex issues and give us confidence in how to respond to them.

From the outset we appreciated David's ability to bring a clear process to the preparation for the hearing. He worked in seamlessly with our landscape architect and planning advisors. The preparation process was explicitly laid out; by the time of the hearing there was a coherent, compelling body of information to be presented.  Even better, they came in on budget.
