Luke Cunningham Clere is the office of the Wellington Crown Solicitor. This means our core business is the prosecution of criminal offences. Our specialist expertise in this area is second to none. Our lawyers are experts in briefing evidence and dealing with witnesses and the evidential issues that arise in the course of litigation.
Ours is a mid-sized firm with six partners and 17 staff solicitors. We're large enough to have considerable breadth and depth of experience among our team. We're small enough to be flexible and adaptable. We foster a collegial environment where a problem-solving approach and fresh thinking are welcome and valued. We enjoy similarly open and mutually respectful relationships with our clients.
As a Crown Solicitor's office, we cannot accept instructions to act against the Crown (unless an express exemption is obtained from the Solicitor-General).
Our approach reflects the public service values we share, such as integrity, honesty, professionalism and a commitment to providing frank advice. When we give advice, we are always mindful of the need to serve the public interest.
Building on-going relationships is important to us. When you work with us, you'll find we make a point of getting to know your business well. You can be sure our advice will fit your organisation’s goals and needs.
