Simpson Grierson is a leading New Zealand commercial law firm and the only firm with a dedicated team of sales and marketing lawyers. Led by partner Peter Stubbs, our specialist team of lawyers has particular expertise advising across all aspects of direct selling law. We have led the market in this area for over 15 years and have assisted over 35 clients in the direct selling industry. We are the chosen legal advisers to both the Direct Selling Association of New Zealand and the Marketing Association of New Zealand. In addition to day to day advice, we advise direct selling companies on the best structure to set up their businesses in New Zealand including from a tax, contracts, and regulatory perspective. Direct sellers also come to us for advice on legality of new products, claims and labelling, plus how to manage complaints and investigations.
In addition to compliance matters we also provide legal advice on sales and marketing, including advertising (web and text promotions), distribution, supply and licensing issues.
We monitor key markets in both New Zealand and overseas (where many of our clients are based) and keep up to date with the latest trends and legal issues.
