Lawyers making a difference to the rural sector

BlackmanSpargo is located in the heart of rural New Zealand.

Our rural focus means we understand farming. We have clients from Northland to the deepest South. We also provide advice to clients from overseas.

We enjoy visiting our clients’ farms so we can better understand farmers’ needs by being on the ground with them and staying in touch. If this is not possible, today’s technology allows us to have meetings at a distance, and complete most legal work without our clients having to travel to see us.

We understand the complex issues faced by rural businesses and we are dedicated to meeting our clients’ needs.  Our goal to be the best specialist rural law firm in New Zealand has been achieved through hard work, continual learning, accountability, openness and good communication. See our philosophy.
