History

Providing the best quality legal advice since 1997

Kiely Thompson Caisley is one of New Zealand’s leading employment law firms. Established as a boutique commercial and employment firm in 1997 with offices in the central business districts in Auckland and Wellington, KTC sought to change the way lawyers operate in the employment field.

The award winning firm was founded by two of the most experienced and noted employment law experts in New Zealand, Andrew Caisley and Peter Kiely, who have remained with the firm since its inception. 

Since then the firm has gone from strength to strength being consistently ranked one of the top employment law firms in New Zealand.

Over its 19 years Kiely Thompson Caisley has grown in numbers but remained a small firm with emphasis on delivering the best outcomes for clients and ensuring value for money.

"Our emphasis is on delivering the best possible outcome for our clients and ensuring value for money."
