Maori Land

Maori land law is a complex area, so specialist expertise is required.


Our experience in this area is the reason many Maori land owners, trusts and incorporations choose us as their legal advisors. 

We provide legal advice to owners of Maori land on a wide range of issues, from everyday matters such as building on Maori land, through to specialist advice in areas such as forestry, farming and succession issues.  We also represent clients in the Maori Land Court.

Our Maori land law practice is led by Wayne Coutts, who has extensive experience in this area. Wayne works closely with our experts in other legal areas - such as resource management law, business and disputes – to provide a seamless service to owners of Maori land. 

We also act for individuals and businesses who want assistance engaging with owners of Maori land, or who need representation in the Maori Land Court.
