Stay Cool, Calm & Collected

Employment law is frequently changing. We know it’s hard to get your head around the many Acts that cover employment law and make sure you’re doing everything right.  That’s where we come in.

We will navigate you through New Zealand’s changing employment landscape.  We can  steer your business safely through your employment obligations, and ensure you’ve got the right mechanisms in place so your business stays on course. Ensuring that your employment agreements, workplace policies and procedures are relevant and up to date is an excellent place to start.  Or if you’re an employee with concerns and want to know what your rights are and how to be heard, we can help there too.

We have 25 years of legal experience, and 20 years of business experience which will help protect your business from mistakes. Our knowledge and guidance will save you time, money & stress.   This allows you to stay cool, calm and collected, enabling you to focus on your business.

Our clients say;

“Recently I approached Atlas Legal to help out with a matter that was causing me an immense amount of stress and grief.  From the moment I entered the Atlas Legal office I felt welcome, valued and respected.  Jo and Sharon were both exceptionally supportive and I felt very comfortable at all times.  I quickly realised that Jo had the skills and experience required to handle and resolve my dispute at the same time as delivering me accurate and time-saving advice.  Jo is very easy to talk to and I have no hesitation in trusting her to deal with my legal affairs.  The office is very elegant and stylish – the ambience warm and balanced, lending itself a pleasure to visit.”

“Jo is fabulous at listening, reassuring and then getting the job done. She’s a humble powerhouse of a lawyer, that really knows her stuff.”
