Your Legal Champions

Gifford Devine began as a small firm of Hastings lawyers. We are  now a leading legal business in Hawke’s Bay. Our depth of knowledge and experience has been recognised by having two partners appointed to the bench to become Judges.

We’re aware the Hawke’s Bay legal landscape has changed, and have evolved with the times, but our dedication to our clients remains the same. We measure our success by setting the standard for exceptional service, and by building strong, enduring relationships with individuals, families, and businesses. We proudly include many iconic Hawke’s Bay businesses as clients.

To respond to the changing face of Hawke’s Bay, Gifford Devine now employs over 40 people with a diverse range of ages, backgrounds, and skills. As your legal champions, we offer a comprehensive range of legal services to represent you at all stages of life.

As we continue to lead the industry through innovation, our commitment, enthusiasm and dedication to our clients will always be our highest priority.
