"The team at Rainey Law were honest and straight talking in their assessment of our case against Auckland Council which helped temper our expectations over a potential settlement. But their excellent preparation of our case and strategy for the mediation meeting helped us put Auckland Council to the sword and achieve a result that far exceeded our initial expectations. A great result from a great team".

"Our company provided body corporate and association management services and we have had the privilege of working closely with Tim Rainey and his team for a number of years. Rainey Law have a depth of expertise over a wide scope of legal matters and can be relied on to consistently provide sound and professional advice that is easily understood by ourselves and our clients. Tim Rainey has the ability to speak confidentially to owner groups and quickly establish rapport and gain the confidence of individuals even when matters are complex and sometimes highly emotional. Tim and his team have taken some matters through to the High Court for our clients and the ability to represent clients at a high level has been clearly evident. I would be happy to endorse Tim and his team for legal work not just in Unit Title matters, but in any area that requires sound and practical legal advice".

"In 2011, we discovered that our home had been built in the middle of a flood plain. Our family lived through three significant floods where we lost many of our worldly possessions and our home was badly damaged. Our insurers cancelled our cover because of the threat of further flood damage. Suddenly, we found ourselves in a situation that was bigger than we could deal with locally. We made inquiries and it was recommended that we approach Rainey Law to take on our case because of their high calibre work on negligence and insurance claims. Right from the beginning, we felt very comfortable with the RL team representing us. Georgina Grant, Jeanne Heatlie and others we dealt with always spoke to us at our level which we really appreciated and they took the time to answer our endless questions about the process, legal issues, options, etc. Although it was a stressful experience, we never felt alone in our plight. Rainey Law approached our case in a smart and knowledgeable way, engaging the right experts and ultimately achieving a fantastic result. We definitely feel that Rainey Law made the situation bearable and having them represent us turned it into a positive experience for us. We have remained in contact with the team at Rainey Law and would highly recommend their services to others".

"Rainey Law gave our body corporate a pathway to justice by providing a conditional fee arrangement. This meant that all our members could participate in the litigation, not just those who had the ability to pay for it. The result achieved by Rainey Law was outstanding. Throughout the litigation, our lawyer, Mark Frogley, was a pleasure to deal with. He acted with complete professionalism and with our best interests as a priority, while remaining always friendly and approachable to discuss our next steps. We wish to thank both him and Rainey Law for an excellent job".

"Following on from what I said to you yesterday, I would like to express my thanks (and Ann-Louise’s thanks also) for the superb effort you made in preparing, and presenting, your closing submissions. That appreciation is not limited to your closing submissions only. We are very impressed and appreciative of the way you presented our case, and your cross examination, etc. Whilst at times I may have appeared doubting or questioning, I am fairly of the belief we received the best representation and presentation of our case possible".
Regards and thanks
