Our team of around 30 have significant experience providing first class legal services to clients in Hawke’s Bay and throughout the country. Our Directors work alongside a team of highly skilled Associates, Solicitors and Legal Executives, all supported by an outstanding administrative crew.
With a broad range of expertise ranging from conveyancing, corporate and commercial law, employment law, to family law and criminal law, Bramwell Bate is one of the only full-service law firms in Hawke’s Bay.
As a team, Bramwell Bate has come together and agreed on five core values. We pride ourselves in being “trusted, approachable, caring, resilient & progressive”. Our values reflect what we prioritise in everyday practice. They motivate how we work with our clients, what we look for in our recruitment processes and our growing relationships within the local community.
Bramwell Bate is a result of a merger in January 2017 between two well-known and established Hawke’s Bay firms – Bate Hallett (established in 1917) and Bramwell Grossman (tracing back to the 1950s). Both firms shared a deep commitment to client service, and the merger in 2017 was a seamless fit, strategically, culturally, and professionally.
We are proud to be one of the longest standing law firms in Hawke’s Bay. Our history, as part of the community, reflects in our ability to cater efficiently to our client’s needs. We are open-minded and adapt not only to changes in the law, but also to the exciting developments within our team and new technologies.
