The Legal Complaints Review Officer independently reviews decisions made by the New Zealand Law Society and New Zealand Society of Conveyancers Standards Committees on complaints against lawyers and conveyancers.
The reviews are as informal and straightforward as possible while giving proper consideration to the process of the review itself and the law.
Before you apply to the Review Officer, you must first complain to the New Zealand Law Society or the New Zealand Society of Conveyancers.

If you are unhappy after a standards committee has investigated a complaint, you can apply to the Legal Complaints Review Officer to review the decision.
