Our Firm

Edmonds Judd is one of the Waikato’s longest-established legal firms, tracing its history back to the first legal practitioner in Te Awamutu, Thomas Gresham, who practised in the 1880s. In its present form it was created in 1987 through the merger of Edmonds Dodd and Judd Brown.

The firm’s offices are located in Albert Park Drive, Te Awamutu, and 17 Lawrence Street, Otorohanga.

Edmonds Judd currently comprises four Partners and twenty staff. The firm places emphasis on professional development of staff, to ensure that we are able to give our clients quality advice. Just as important to us is the creation of a relaxed, supportive relationship with our clients, to relieve them of the worry or stress that sometimes accompanies legal processes. Hence the description sometimes applied to us – ‘the friendly professionals’.

Whilst the majority of the firm’s clients live in rural Waikato, our long-term relationships and our special expertise in areas of law such as farm sales result in us having many valued and loyal clients across the length and breadth of New Zealand, our ability to service this wider constituency being enhanced by our commitment to modern technology and communications.
