An exciting piece of news: after six happy years in our Addington office Portia’s Christchurch branch will be relocating. From 15 January next year Portia’s mid-Canterbury operation will be based out of new and improved premises at the BNZ Centre, 111 Cashel Street.
This is something that has been in the works for a long time. We are ambitious in our vision for Portia. We want to grow and continue to provide excellent legal services to as many people as we can. We know that larger premises and a more central location will help us thrive.
It is our vision that every person in New Zealand has the ability to access a lawyer and the justice system.
Portia’s new headquarters are on level 1 of the BNZ Centre, directly opposite Ballantynes on Cashel Street
A bigger office in a more centralised location plays a critical role in accomplishing that mission It will have better access and be easier to reach by public transport. We will also now be within walking distance of the court, which is an obvious bonus.
We’re looking forward to joining law firm Cavell Leitch in the space, upstairs. Also nearby are Wynn Williams, Lane Neave and Anderson Lloyd. Of course, with 11 lawyers (and growing) having the courthouse mere minutes away will save lots of time.
While our location will change, our values and passion for our work will not. We’re committed to maintaining the relationships we have formed. This new chapter in Portia’s story is exciting and we look forward to continuing our journey in a bright new space.
