Rainey Law has one of the most effective appellate practices in the country. Our team has successfully briefed and argued appeals across a remarkable range of legal issues, in the District Court, High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court of New Zealand.

Our lawyers are able to provide specialist appellate advice, support and representation to clients whose initial trial or arbitration has not resulted in the outcome they hoped for, or to those who face an appeal from a disappointed litigant.

Recognising our ability to quickly grasp the essential facts of even the most complex and challenging cases, clients have hired us to represent them on appeal after using a different lawyer at trial.

Rainey Law is also frequently instructed by other lawyers to “peer review” litigation strategy and potential legal arguments in order to advise on the merits of an appeal or to assist in preparing written submissions or oral argument.
