DTI Lawyers named Boutique Law Firm of the Year

DTI Lawyers is delighted to have been recognized with NZ Lawyer’s Boutique Firm of the Year Award for its specialist employment law practice.

Since the pandemic, New Zealand’s employment landscape has experienced more change than ever before. Businesses, individuals and communities have needed strong leadership, clear guidance and empathy, director Jaime Lomas says. “We place a high value on relationships and our contribution to the Waikato community. We feel extremely grateful to be recognised this way.”

Director Andrea Twaddle considers that the award not only reflects the experience and expertise of the DTI team, but also their genuine engagement with clients. “Many business owners and workers are at risk of burnout and there is significant competition for good people across sectors,” Andrea says. “It is a significant time to be supporting businesses leading people strategy, culture, health safety and wellbeing, matters, and we are thankful for the privilege.”

Led by directors Jaime Lomas and Andrea Twaddle, and supported by senior associate Anna Jackman, and associates Katy Baxter and Kirsty Tyson, the DTI employment team has extensive combined experience across contentious and non-contentious employment matters, independent workplace investigations, and privacy. They have had many successful outcomes in dispute resolution, including at mediation, the Employment Relations Authority and Employment Court. Alongside working with SMEs and large commercial entities, the firm has particular specialist expertise within the education and healthcare sectors.
