The Rhodes & Co Legacy

Founded in 1884 by Arthur Rhodes, a New Zealand luminary in politics, law, business and philanthropy, Rhodes & Co has evolved into a premier law firm in the South Island.

We take pride in our reputation for matters demanding a sophisticated approach and strategic attention. This reputation relies on the wealth of experience and skills possessed by our Partners, many of whom actively contribute to the boards of various companies and organisations.

Rather than aiming to be the largest firm by solicitor count, we prioritise being the firm of choice in your most important legal matters.

Over the years, our Partners have continued the tradition of excellence and maintained a steadfast commitment to our clients.

As we build this legacy, our focus remains on providing the highest quality legal services with a personalised touch that suits the unique needs of each client in the evolving legal landscape.

Our established team of Partners have the in-depth skills and experience to advise across a range of sectors.
