about our firm

what we’re about

Kindrik Partners was founded in 2006. In 2012, we decided to focus exclusively on the technology sector, one of New Zealand’s fastest growing business segments. Since then, we haven’t looked back. We have trebeled in size, opening offices in Auckland (2014) and Singapore (2017) in the process.  

We help our tech company clients do business in every corner of the world.  The international nature of our work feels like we are in a business hub like London or New York. Which we think is pretty cool for a Kiwi law firm.

our not-so-secret sauce

It’s a simple recipe.

We hire talented lawyers who love working in the tech sector. We give them great tools to work with and empower them to help our clients do business, rather than sweating the small stuff.

We go deep in our specialist field – tech startups, capital raising, m&a, governance and contracts – so we can give our clients the best advice as efficiently as possible.

Finally we innovate when we see benefits for our clients. For example, when we decided to focus exclusively on the tech industry vertical, the first thing we did was open-source our library of tech legal templates. By providing our clients the tools to manage the legal basics themselves, it’s lowered their legal spend. It’s also allowed us to focus on the mission-critical work that our clients know really counts.
