We are active members of the West Auckland community and are proud to support a range of not-for-profit organisations, projects and events. From community organisations that fundraise for the good of the region, to schools and sporting clubs, arts and culture events, the organisations we support make Auckland more vibrant, friendly and fun.


Smith and Partners Law Scholarships

The Smith and Partners Law Scholarships are awarded annually to students from West Auckland secondary schools to assist them to pay their first year of fees towards a New Zealand university law degree.  There are three main prizes of $2000, $1000 and $500, and each finalist receives a $50 book voucher.  Learn more here or visit the Smith and Partners Law Scholarship facebook page.

Citizen’s Advice Bureau

People within our community don’t always have the resources to engage a lawyer.
By providing free legal advice at the Henderson, Massey and Helensville Citizens Advice Bureaus, we help ensure that all members of our community can have access to legal advice when they need it.

Schools & Educational Groups

West Auckland’s schools are the lifeblood of our community, and with 22% of Auckland’s population aged 15 or under, we see support of these groups as one of the biggest contributions we can make.  From sponsoring Waitakere Primary School's entry into the Rotary Soapbox Derby, to Matipo Primary's newsletter to providing pro bono legal advice to Te Akoranga Playcentre Association, Smith & Partners are delighted to back West Auckland schools

Sports Clubs

The team at Smith & Partners are avid sportspeople, whether we’re coaching, playing or serving on the club board or committee, we appreciate the value sporting clubs bring to the West Auckland community.

Smith and Partners have been heavily involved in all things equestrian since our inception.  Founding Partner, Peter Smith has been involved in New Zealand Horse Racing for over 30 years and his love for all things horses has spread through the team.
