As a civil engineer and contractor, Kevin has been a part of the construction industry in New Zealand for over thirty years. Unlike most lawyers, he is experienced in the construction process from a practical perspective. Kevin has been practising construction law since 2009. The firm became a family project in 2017, when Laura and Kate came onboard as law clerks. They were admitted to the High Court in June 2019 and now practise as solicitors in the firm.
We are passionate about educating members of the construction industry on their rights and obligations as principals and contractors. Encouraging compliance throughout the industry with the Construction Contracts Act 2002 is a particular focus within the firm.
As a specialist law firm centered on construction, we provide attentive and highly-focused service to our clients.
We are committed to taking every step we can to fight the spread of COVID-19 and its impact on New Zealanders. As a result, from 1 November 2021 badcocklaw has begun implementing a new policy in relation to COVID-19 vaccination.
From 1 November 2021, any visitor to badcocklaw’s Rotorua premises must have received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. This policy allows us to keep our staff, clients, and families as safe as possible by minimising the risk of transmission of COVID-19.
Visitors can also feel assured that all badcocklaw staff are fully vaccinated, in line with this policy and our strong belief that being vaccinated is the best way to protect each other and move towards a more open world.
If you are not vaccinated or have not received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, we will work with you to ensure that we can continue to safely provide the same attentive service we have always offered.
We have a particular passion for educating members of the construction industry. We can offer standard or bespoke training programs for your staff on any number of matters, including:
Construction dispute resolution
Construction Contracts Act 2002
