Industry influence, public sector guidance

In a recent edition of Chambers and Partner's leading directory on lawyers (2009), it noted that Wigley + Company is considered "outstanding for regulatory and public policy work" and Michael Wigley is acknowledged by peers as "the single best TMT lobbyist in New Zealand".

When you talk to us about public law, you can rest assured you're in good hands. We regularly deal with the Commerce Commission and Government, and we've played a key role in some of New Zealand's landmark regulation - including the operational separation of Telecom and Telecom's related Undertakings.

Wigley + Company has advised on numerous public sector procurements, and we write the New Zealand chapter of an international text on the subject. Our involvement extends well beyond the legal requirements as that is only part of the story.

Public law issues are often part of the complex projects and disputes services we provide.
