Zeopard Law

Because the law is not always black and white…and life never is. 

Jennie Vickers established Zeopard Law in 2008 after 22 years in practice as a solicitor in large private practice firms and corporates in New Zealand and overseas. Zeopard Law was established to provide specialist legal advice and assistance in the commercial arena. We especially like working with people and organisations who, like us, think differently. Small business entrepreneurs, innovators and creators of ideas and intellectual property are a special interest.
