Firm Overview

Duthie Whyte has practised in the Auckland Central Business District in excess of 80 years. The firm has throughout that period provided quality legal services to a variety of clients, including corporates, trusts and private individuals operating in all business sectors. Although based in Auckland, as New Zealand is not a federal system, the firm can and does act on matters throughout the country.

The physical nature of Auckland has changed significantly during that period, and so has the physical nature of Duthie Whyte. Today, handwritten ledgers have given way to the latest electronic technology but our philosophy to provide legal services of the highest quality still remains the same and is characterised by: friendly personal service, access to partners, cost effectiveness, quality of information, speed of communication, commitment to the achievement of client’s objectives and access to consultants of the highest calibre in specialty skills.

Duthie Whyte prides itself on an ability to provide both a personal approach and quality professional advice. The growth of International trade and investment makes fast and reliable access to local and international advice a pre-requisite for all clients.

Duthie Whyte prides itself on its relationship with members of other professional disciplines and can obtain almost immediate advice and support for clients from specialists of the highest standards.
