Emma Stanley



You will never meet anyone as passionate about property law, achieving the best for her clients and her business as Emma! With over ten years legal experience under her belt, Emma took a leap of faith in February 2014 and created Emma Stanley Law. The business has grown quickly and gained a formidable reputation for providing exceptional legal services to clients, particularly in property law. Emma Stanley Law was a finalist in the 2015 Westpac Business Excellence Awards in the Powernet New and Emerging Award and the 2017 Westpac Business Excellence Awards in Professional Services and Innovation.

In 2016, Emma designed and launched NZ’s first legal app, Easylaw. The app is designed to take the stress out of buying first home and includes helpful definitions and checklists. Click here for more information about EasyLaw and links to download the app for free.

Southland born and bred, Emma also lived in Wellington where she completed her law degree and put in the hard yards with other law firms. Even as a young lawyer, Emma enjoyed the challenge of building her own client base. After leaving Wellington to return to Invercargill, many of Emma’s clients continue to work with Emma, approaching her of their own accord, proving that distance is no barrier to great legal service! New clients are not only local Southlanders, but based throughout NZ and the world.

Emma has quickly become the lawyer of choice for many first home buyers, guiding them through the house buying process as well as helping with Kiwisaver Withdrawals and Housing New Zealand HomeStart Grant Applications.
