Specialist employment and health and safety law firm Copeland Ashcroft has opened an office in Rotorua, taking its presence to 13 locations nationwide.

The Rotorua office will be staffed each Wednesday by Senior Solicitor Renee Harley.
The firm acts for employers across a range of industries delivering strategic, compliance and best practice advice on non-contentious matters as well as providing representation in disputes.
Principal Kate Ashcroft says the expansion is due to the increasing demand for specialist employment and health and safety law support.
“We are seeing unprecedented demand for employment law advice due to the ever-expanding range of legislative changes and requirements employers face. We want to be there at the coalface to help employers navigate through the potential hazards and having an office here in Rotorua is another way of connecting directly with those who need us,” she says.
