Legal firm eyes up growth possibilities


A long-standing Christchurch law firm is the latest addition to big legal companies setting up in Queenstown. 

Cavell-Leitch opened its local branch earlier this month with Queenstown lawyer Stephen Brent (right) moving to the firm after four years at Anderson Lloyd. 

Brent, who specialises in business, commercial and property law, says the firm hopes to grow its office with more staff in the near future. 

“Cavell-Leitch see Queenstown as a pretty exciting, vibrant, growing market and they felt it was a place they wanted to be in,” Brent says. 

“If you look at the projected growth figures for this district and this town, there’s plenty of room for another good law firm like ours.”
