Madison Hardy is a boutique law firm that specialises in serving the needs of small to medium businesses, and their owners, directors and personnel.
The firm was formed in 1998 by Geoff Hardy after 20 years as a commercial lawyer in a number of large New Zealand and Australian law firms. Geoff’s academic qualifications and his background as a former partner in New Zealand national law firm Simpson Grierson, means that we can confidently handle any commercial law matter, no matter how complex.
Our primary focus is on company, commercial and business law, but we also cater to the government and local government sector, non-profit organisations, and private individuals. We aim to be the “one stop shop” that takes care of all the legal needs of our clients. In situations where our clients require specialist expertise that is outside of our skill range, we can take the guesswork out of selecting the appropriate advisers for you, and we monitor their performance for you if required.
Our clients forge long-term relationships with us, and we strive not only to be their advisers, problem-solvers and trouble-shooters, but also their mentors. Our emphasis is on quality and thoroughness, and we are particularly good at restoring order out of chaos. Our greatest asset is the judgment Geoff has gained from his three decades of experience - we invariably know what the answer is, and what your chances of success are.
Finally, because we are a small firm with relatively low overheads, we enjoy two competitive advantages – you will always be able to deal directly with the lawyer of your choice, and our charges will invariably be lower than those of other lawyers offering comparable services.
