Growing with the Selwyn District

Almost 6 years to the day since Parry Field Lawyers opened its office in the Selwyn District, the firm has officially moved into new larger premises at 80 Rolleston Drive.

Selwyn Mayor Sam Broughton was on hand for the ribbon cutting and celebration.  He praised Parry Field for having the foresight to base itself in a region which has just been confirmed as the fastest growing in the country and now has just under 80,000 people, with more new residents than anywhere else in New Zealand.

“I want to congratulate Parry Field Lawyers for what may have seemed like a courageous decision all those years ago to set up an office and being here to serve the community,” the Mayor said. “I wish you all the best in your roles but also as a business. You continue to have a name that’s respected in our community, so thanks very much and well done.”

Partnership Chair, Kris Morrison, says it’s exciting to see the team and services in Waikirikiri Selwyn grow as the region has. With several partners and other key staff based in the district, he says Parry Field already felt there was an established relationship and connection with the area, and it has seemed like a natural fit for the business.

The other important aspect of Parry Field’s decision on office locations is all about accessibility.  “Often you hear that people feel lawyers are up in their ivory towers and there’s some sort of mystique about going to see a lawyer. That’s not really our ethos,” he told the guests at the opening.

“We’ve always wanted to be accessible to our clients, so being able to be closer to them is really important to us.  From what we’ve seen people appreciate not having to drive into Christchurch for a lawyer visit.”

He said Parry Field is planning to continue its work to support local businesses with a series of complimentary free ‘check-ins’ for new start-ups in the district.

“We want to work with them to make sure they’ve got all the bases in place that they need.”  There’ll be more details on the initiative in the New Year.
