In December 2022, Mount Lawyers Limited became part of iCLAW, a full-service law firm based in Hamilton. Mount Lawyers continues to operate as a division of iCLAW.
Mount Lawyers (also previously known as CG Law Limited) has a rich history, having previously been owned and operated by Clive Gardner for 37 years, then by Grant Aislabie for a further 4 years, before becoming part of iCLAW in 2022. This strategic partnership sees Partner Grant Aislabie and Associate Seb Bucher continue to operate from the Mount Lawyers office at 159 Maunganui Road, now also supported by the wider iCLAW team.
iCLAW Partners Sam Douglas and Owen Culliney were both born and bred in Tauranga, and their families have deep roots in the region. For Sam - the ties to Mount Lawyers goes further. Sam's father, John Douglas (a Family Law Barrister), and Grant Aislabie (current partner of Mount Lawyers) were once in partnership together. Clive Gardner also worked with Sam's dad John many years ago, and remains a good friend of the Douglas family today. Sam and the iCLAW team are proud to have inherited this legacy, and look forward to the opportunities that arise from Tauranga and Mount Maunganui.
