Meet Us

It’s been a year since The Law Shop took over Stratagem Lawyers in Mount Maunganui and opened their Tauranga office in Greerton. It’s been a fantastic twelve months for The Law Shop’s Partners Paula Lines, Stephanie Northey, and Sarsha Tyrrell, as their business continues to thrive. They now have a team of 15, working in both Rotorua and Tauranga.

Their office on 1262 Cameron Road in Greerton is getting too small for the team, so they are in the process of moving again. Although the old building has character, it’s too hot in summer and hard to keep warm in the winter months.

“We are getting ready to move across the road to a larger and more comfortable office space. All our Tauranga business will be done from there when we move. This means we’ll close our small office at the Mount as well, but the Rotorua office stays as is,” Paula says.

The Law Shop’s all-female team is big on offering personable advice and legal support to their clients, and they make sure to talk to people in everyday terms. The three Directors work extremely well together, and they have their individual strengths and expertise.

Paula’s areas of work include the formation of and administration of trusts, relationship property agreements, commercial and business law, subdivisions and general law. Stephanie, who runs the Rotorua office, specialises in family law, mental health and employment law. Sarsha is an expert at helping families with legal issues including domestic violence, childcare arrangements and Child Youth & Family matters (now Oranga Tamariki).

“We’re down to earth and informal, and we genuinely care about our clients. We pride ourselves on delivering on time, every time, and it’s important to us to provide legal advice without the jargon, and we do it at a fair price,” Paula says. She explains that the team is approachable and flexible and that they are not nine-to-five people.

“We don’t apply a one size fits all approach to our work, and we encourage our clients to communicate with us in a way that works best for them. We also know that being able to see us close to your home or workplace is important, so we are happy to travel and come to you, even outside “normal” working hours if that fits better with your timeframes,” she says.

If you are buying or selling a property, setting up a business or if you need a Will, a prenup, or legal assistance around other matters, get in touch with the friendly team at The Law Shop. They will talk you through all the details in normal English and will give you expert advice that fits you and your unique situation. Feel free to contact them anytime
