You face various legal challenges. Because we’re like you, we understand. You want practical advice, effective solutions, peace of mind.


You want a local lawyer, with history and stability, as well as expertise. Corcoran French has strong ties to North Canterbury. We started out in Kaiapoi in 1892. We’ve grown into a medium size law firm serving the wider Canterbury and West Coast regions and further afield.

You want someone who is approachable. We have 50 employees spread over our North Canterbury and Christchurch offices, with 16 of those staff in our Kaiapoi office. If you need us to see you at your home or business, we can do so too. Electronic mediums such as Skype are also a possibility. Offering a flexible approach means that we can meet your needs, wherever you are.

You need a wide array of legal expertise. Our staff are highly trained and able to provide effective and practical advice across a wide range of legal issues. We work with small to medium businesses and larger organisations, trusts and individuals. We offer our collective expertise in a wide range of legal areas including business matters, employment, commercial property, resource management, litigation, earthquake issues, insurance negotiations, franchise law, estate administration, trusts, family and relationship property advice, wills & trusts and property related transactions.

The local community is important to you. It’s important to us too. Working alongside community groups in the region allows us to deliver our services to meet local needs. More importantly, it provides us with the opportunity to give back to and support our local community.

We are here in your community to provide you with effective solutions to your legal issues and peace of mind. Call us today or visit our website for further information.
