Anti-Money Laundering

We promise we'll make it easy

Anti-Money Laundering laws are there to protect NZ against criminal activity (it’s a bigger issue than it might appear).

This means that we (and all other law firms) must undertake due diligence on customers, including asking for specific identification.

We are required (by law) to obtain this identification from you before we’re able to begin our work, even if we’ve dealt with you in the past (apologies!).

To streamline the process, please enter your details in the boxes on this page. We’ll use this verify your identification electronically.

By clicking submit, you give us authority to match the details you enter against various electronic databases including:
– New Zealand Transport Agency
– Department of Internal Affairs
– Global AML registry
– Centrix Credit Bureau
– Land Information New Zealand
– New Zealand Companies Office

Please note that in some situations we’ll need additional information – in this case, we’ll come back to you as soon as possible.
