“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.”

I would like to say a big thank you to Cameron and others at Saunders and Co team. As I had very complicated case they did their best to get ultimate result. I would highly recommend to other immigrants who need assistance.

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.”

“Charlotte made our transition in selling and buying a property a stress free event. I was expecting quite a battle as I find ‘lawyer speak’ just not consumer friendly unless you have had some undertaking with the profession. Charlotte made the whole process clear, concise, and explained everything how we could understand it. I believe she went beyond what is required of her and consequently you have generated return business to your company because of her. I certainly will be telling everyone I know of our positive warm experience.”
— Lynn Mortlock
“Thank you very much for all the work you did to make this smooth sailing for us. I have been so impressed with how efficient the process has been, even with minor hiccups along the way. I’ll be sure to recommend you and will keep you in mind for future legal matters.”

As a small business operating in the New Zealand fishing scene there are many ‘fish hooks’ for the unwary. Sometimes you find yourself unintentionally swimming amongst the sharks. Then my company came under attack from overseas threats it was time to bring on board the legal expertise of David Lang. He acted quickly and decisively to save me from being caught by some nasty predators. He simply saved my business.”
