Why Choose Us

A modern style of working

We’re tech savvy and offer digital solutions that make working with us easy. We’ve embraced digital solutions that enable us to work smarter, more efficiently and make documents accessible to those who need them.

We go easy on the jargon

We use everyday language to give clear explanations and advice. It’s important that you understand what you’re doing and that you don’t feel overwhelmed by legal jargon.

We are experts

We specialise in trusts and life planning law and provide expert advice and knowledge in these areas. We focus on what we know really well and if you need help with something else we will refer you to someone with the right expertise.

We're approachable

We want you to feel comfortable to ask questions and contact us whenever you need advice. We’re people just like you and are easy to talk to.

Fair and transparent pricing

We provide pricing upfront so you know exactly what a service will cost. Where we can we will provide you with a fixed cost and a solution that is tailored to your needs. In cases where the scope is unclear, we will provide you with an estimate. This means no surprises at the end and you can contact us with questions without the worry of being charged each time.

About Gemma

Hi I’m Gemma McDougall, founder of Gem Legal. I’m a lawyer with over 12 years’ experience, including 5 years as a partner in a general practice firm in Lower Hutt.

My vision for Gem Legal is to break the mould of how legal advice is traditionally provided and embrace modern ways of working. It’s about working smarter with digital tools and making quality advice accessible.

I understand that your time is precious and a valuable commodity. This is why I am committed to finding new ways to get the job done quickly and efficiently. So that you can spend more time doing what you love and less time sifting through the legal jargon and paperwork. 

Legal transactions are only one piece of life’s bigger picture. Getting to know you, what’s important to you and your goals for the future enables me to help you plan ahead and put solutions in place that are tailored for you.  

Our clients love us

“Gemma assisted me with setting up a Family Trust, Will and Enduring Powers of Attorney. Gemma worked with me to ensure that a Family Trust was appropriate for me and that there weren’t other options that would work better for me.  I have never had a Will or an EPA before or thought about getting either of these. Gemma’s communication and advice during the process was second to none…”
