We listen.
We act.

What really makes MC different to any top law firm is our people and our attitude. You won’t find floors of big egos. Just an expert team that wants to do right for every client, who are keen to listen to your needs, and then work out the best way to apply the law to help you achieve your goals. As the headline says: We don’t just talk. First we listen. Then we act. And then we get results.

History is our


As Crown Solicitors, we have prosecuted almost every serious crime before the courts in Auckland for the past 100 years. It’s safe to say no other law firm in New Zealand can demonstrate quite the same history of integrity, experience and success.

Sir Vincent Meredith was appointed Auckland’s first Crown Solicitor in 1921, followed by Robert Meredith, Sir Graham Speight, David Morris, Simon Moore and Brian Dickey.  In 2023, Alysha McClintock became Crown Solicitor, creating an unbroken lineage that extends beyond our 100th year.
