About Us

Kilian & Associates is a boutique law firm with its main office located in Auckland (New Zealand), specialising in litigation, tax, and corporate and commercial restructuring law. The firm has a wealth of expertise in advising and acting for individuals, businesses and large corporations on contentious and non-contentious matters.

Our firm operates through digital systems which allows us to have a client base stretch throughout New Zealand and globally.

We are committed to:

  • Understanding the concerns and objectives of our clients;
  • Providing concise and responsive pragmatic and strategic advice to our clients; and
  • Achieving the best possible outcome for our clients.

Having come from legal practice at a top-tier law firm, having a managerial position in a government department, and working on complex disputes, we pride ourselves on being able to provide high quality legal services on a flexible, efficient and cost-effective basis. It is this quality and value that has enabled us to develop strong and ongoing relationships with many of our clients.

We talk through issues, we listen carefully, and we keep listening. We focus on achieving the best results while providing a personalised service.

Diversity & Inclusion

Kilian & Associates believes in equality for all irrelevant of gender, age, political views, physical ability, sexual orientation, religion, culture or race.

We are committed to maintain a discrimination-free environment, whether it be between colleagues or lawyer-client relationships, and this is evident in how we work together.

An issue at hand across the globe is gender disparities in the workforce. Here at Kilian & Associates we are tackling this by facing unconscious bias, encouraging flexible working, closing the gender pay gap and promoting equitable instructions. As such we are very proud to be signatories of the New Zealand Law Society's Gender Equality Charter.
