Rice + Co is a boutique dispute resolution law firm providing alternative thinking for today’s challenges.

There are many litigation firms in New Zealand.  Few are committed to providing specialist services to local government.  Rice + Co has partnered with local government for over 25 years achieving pragmatic and innovative solutions.

With local government clients from the far north to the deep south, we have to act and think differently. Rather than a one size fits all approach, we formulate strategies that are tailored to our client and the dispute before us.


We understand the business of local government.  We know what is at stake.  We are proud of our reputation for providing creative and cost effective solutions for local government both before the courts and in alternative dispute forums.

Rice + Co is known for making the complex simple.  That’s what sets us apart.

We are your perfect partner.



Let us help with:

  • Claims resolution
  • Judicial Review
  • Enforcement and regulatory compliance
  • LIM content advice
  • LGOIMA requests
  • Regulatory advice under the Resource Management Act, Building Act, Local Government Act and Health and Safety at Work Act.
