I am a lawyer at Saunders & Co specialising in immigration law and intellectual property law.


I first worked with Saunders and Co as a summer clerk between 2016 and 2017 while completing my Bachelor of Laws at the University of Canterbury. After graduating, and having developed an interest in immigration law while studying, I joined the immigration team in early 2018 and was admitted to the bar later that year.


I assist clients to obtain a full range of visas; business, student, work, visitor, family, and residence visas. My particular interest lies in assisting clients applying on the basis of partnership. I also advocate for clients when concerns or issues are raised during the processing of their application.

I specialise in the following areas:

What My Clients Say

Hi there. Just a quick note to advise of our sincere appreciation for Julia Lang’s fine service with our immigration visa issue for our staff member. INZ’s final positive decision was clearly made resulting from your comprehensive response to each point they had made. It’s my view that anything other than this thorough job would most likely have resulted in a negative decision. I’m also heartened that your job done was every bit as good for this non New Zealander as it would have been for a client of many years standing. Well done!
