Chapman Tripp is a dynamic and innovative commercial law firm at the leading edge of legal practice in New Zealand. With around 60 partners and more than 400 staff across offices in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch, the firm supports clients to succeed across industry, commerce and government.
The firm is known as the ‘go to’ for complex, business-critical strategic mandates across the full spectrum of corporate and commercial law. Chapman Tripp’s expertise covers mergers and acquisitions, capital markets, banking and finance, restructuring and insolvency, Māori business, litigation and dispute resolution, employment, health and safety, government and public law, privacy and data protection, intellectual property, media and telecommunications, real estate and construction, energy, environmental and natural resources, and tax.
Chapman Tripp’s sustainability strategy encompasses four key workstreams: contributing to our community, giving back through pro bono work, being a responsible employer, and working sustainably.
Chapman Tripp meets the requirements of Toitū’s carbonreduce® certification having measured its greenhouse gas emissions in accordance with ISO 14064-1:2006. The firm is committed to managing and reducing its emissions and has developed a GHG emissions management plan and reduction targets.
The firm is a partner in The Aotearoa Circle, a unique partnership of public and private sector leaders, focused on the pursuit of sustainable prosperity and reversing the decline of New Zealand’s natural resources. Chapman Tripp actively contributes to the Sustainable Finance Forum’s report and roadmap on how New Zealand can move to a more sustainable financial system.
In conjunction with The Aotearoa Circle, last year Chapman Tripp legal experts led a ground-breaking assessment on the duties of company directors and fund (scheme) managers to assess climate change risk in their decision-making. The firm is currently working with the Circle on a toolkit for directors, on management of climate change risk in New Zealand and intended to make climate risk manageable for boards.

Being connected to our community and our environment is part of our DNA – and has been for over 100 years. We are proud to play an active role within the communities in which we work, providing funding, legal skills and time to make a difference. Our focus is supporting youth and education, charitable entities and social business initiatives, and a flourishing arts community in Aotearoa New Zealand. We have formal partnerships with four community organisations: BLAKE, Creative HQ, First Foundation, and New Zealand Opera.
We meet the requirements of Toitū's carbonreduce certification having measured its greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) in accordance with ISO 14064-1:2006. We are committed to managing and reducing our emissions and have developed a GHG emissions management plan and reduction targets.
In 2007 we established Project Footprint, a working group focusing on driving awareness of our firm's environmental impacts and what we can do to minimise them. We’ve identified numerous ways we can make a positive difference, including carefully considering our needs and methods of business travel, reducing food waste and recycling paper throughout our offices. Our regular internal communications encourage our people to be mindful of our environmental impact and how we can all work in a more sustainable way.Awards and Certifications: Enviro-Mark
