“Jen Bensley has been an absolute treasure in my residency application. After battling with INZ for months and getting nowhere, Jen took my case and gave me realistic outcomes and options for us to look at. My residency finally got approved and it would not have been possible without her assistance. Highly recommend this firm and Jen!”

Charlotte Grimshaw is very efficient and has a good knowledge of conveyancing. She took time to explain things such as the LIM and the building reports and then followed up with us to ensure that we were happy and gave us room and time to ask questions if we had any concerns. We recommend her good communication skills. She also followed up with us to ensure that we understood the building purchase agreement. She was very thorough. We would recommend Charlotte to any of our friends who want to venture into buying a property in Christchurch. We couldn’t ask for a better conveyancing solicitor. She knows her stuff. Nov 2019

“Great law firm with great staff.
Saunders & Co has extraordinary professionals … Cameron did a great job for my Student Visa. He was truly exceptional. Answering all my questions promptly and in an easy jargon. He was always on top of his game, constantly thinking ahead. When I started this process, all the information around my case seemed overwhelming but he was able to explain everything and, most importantly, give me a plan to follow and back up plans as well if necessary. I am more than grateful to him for his patience and genuine desire to help people like me student in New Zealand.”

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!
— Brent McConchie
I used the service and they were PERFECT.!!!
Cameron and Jen, thanks so much for everything and sorry about the complains. You two are so good, and the next steps I will contact again.
— Anna Cristina Jorge
Cameron and Jen were amazingly helpful, got my work visa declined and they did all the paperwork in a day! I got my visa in just a week after sending it back to immigration. We also have applied for my Fathers Talent visa and we are going to have them applying for their residency in the future.
I strongly recommend them!!

“It’s wonderful to have you helping people to secure a place in New Zealand. I give my full support to you and your employer, Saunders & Co. You have done a terrific job in securing a visa for my new wife who was living in Thailand. Your empathy for our situation, when first denied a visa in Thailand, was appreciated so much and through your hard work and experience we were able to get her to New Zealand to be with me. I would recommend your services to anybody that has to deal with immigration to obtain entry into NZ or is struggling with criteria involving immigration. I can’t thank you enough for your hard work and efforts on Santana’s behalf.”

“I shall feel honoured if you would consider my remarks regarding Andrew Riches, worthy for something. No doubt, Andrew Riches is a brilliant asset for Saunders & Co. I have lived in the USA and Canada for more that 20 years and have had an opportunity to meet lawyers in Christchurch and abroad but this young man looked to me way ahead of his age, and he is outstanding when comparing him with other lawyers in this small city. His approach and intelligence, his demeanour at this age, is bewildering. I am a very international person so please do not take my remarks for granted, you will see it to be true, he will be a big name soon in this city. I wish him a good future.”

“I first used Ben Frampton, of Saunders & Co, for my first property purchase back in 1994. Ben has looked after our affairs since then, which have included more property dealings. Ben’s work included resolving some curly issues around a property investment in Lyttleton in 2006 (land purchase and building contract). We were impressed at how he handled things without hesitation or fuss. Another example concerned a house building dispute. Ben’s assistance resulted in the house build being completed, with the ownership being transferred to us, without prejudice to our claims. This meant we minimised any accommodation inconvenience, preserved our legal position, and saved money. Ben’s calm demeanour, consistent communication style, and professional approach have left us stress free, and with total confidence in him. You hear stories of disputes once lawyers get involved, racking up costs, with taxi tariff charging styles for the likes of making phone calls and sending faxes. This has never been the case with Ben, and the fees charged have been more than fair considering the multiple dealings he has often had to undertake on our behalf. We have been, and still are, overseas-based. Ben takes this into account in his communication. He is always thorough in contacting us, explaining issues and receiving our input, before taking action. The staff members at Saunders & Co have always provided good and pleasant service to us.”

“I have known Ben Frampton personally for almost 20 years, and over that time I have been made aware of his very solid reputation for sound advice, reliability and proficiency as a legal advisor. Latterly, as President of The Burnside Park Tennis Club, I have had the pleasure of working alongside Ben in his role as Club solicitor. His advice is always knowledgeable and efficient, and has been the cornerstone of many important decisions, often in areas which have been sensitive and crucial to the Club’s well-being. Ben is highly respected for his integrity and his objective assessment of emerging issues, and the Club is extremely grateful for his readily available expertise. My own confidence in Ben is such that he is also our family solicitor. I have no hesitation in recommending him to others.”

“Saunders & Co has handled Annette’s and my legal work from the time we purchased our first home in 1978. Ben Frampton has handled a number of real estate transactions for us since then as well as advising us on business and estate matters. Recently he handled some very delicate negotiations with regard to my late mother’s estate and was able to agree an outcome, which was fair and acceptable to all parties. This was done in his normal calm and considered manner, which helped settle a potentially stressful time for my sister and me. I have recommended Ben to a number of clients over the years and will no doubt continue to do so in the future.”
