The staff at Malloy Goodwin Harford have always provided an exemplary service.

– Franklin Solomon, Solomon Group

Specialising in property, private client, commercial and intellectual property work.

We are a law firm based in Newmarket, Auckland. Our firm is small enough to provide a personal service yet large enough to provide specialist legal advice on a wide range of legal and commercial issues.

Our clients include individuals and families, family and not-for-profit entities, emerging and established businesses and a number of well-known national and multi-national companies.

Our long-term relationship with so many of our clients is the strongest measure of our clients’ acceptance of our desire and ability to provide personalised and helpful advice and assistance.

Our law firm has grown with our clients.  We are proud of that collaboration and of our clients’ confidence and appreciation.

How we can help

The establishment of clients’ family trusts and the management of their investments, as well as asset planning and succession arrangements between generations comprise a significant part of our practice.


Our commercial lawyers provide comprehensive advice to our commercial and corporate clients.  Our business clients range from individuals and families to large companies trading internationally.

Intellectual Property

Our commercial lawyers are often called upon to give advice on intellectual property issues for our clients.

Our lawyers have the benefit of significant New Zealand and international experience in intellectual property matters.
