Meares Williams Lawyers in Christchurch, New Zealand

Welcome to Meares Williams Lawyers

Meares Williams has been serving Christchurch and Canterbury people and businesses for over 100 years.

We have a long tradition of providing high quality, cost effective legal services throughout New Zealand.

Our clients include national corporations, construction companies, large estates and trusts, large scale rural operators, incorporated societies and individuals, many of whom have been with us for decades.

All of our clients have direct contact with the partner who is responsible for their work and each partner directly oversees work carried out by other members of the team.

We place genuine emphasis on a sense of concern for people and their personal and business interests. This focus has been instilled by partners throughout the years.


Meares Williams is proud to be a sponsor of the Court Theatre. 
We also assist a number of community and not for profit organisations that require our support, including:
Christian World Service
Pacific Leprosy Foundation
JR McKenzie Youth Education Fund
Blind Children's Charitable Trust
