Tompkins Wake | Icehouse Partner

The people of Tompkins Wake are what make our firm. We are different from other law firms in the way we think, work and behave.

As a leading New Zealand law firm, we believe in the power of collaboration. We know that when our collective knowledge, specialisation and expertise combine in a collaborative environment, we create exceptional outcomes for our clients. Our AI-driven tech service AdviSME was designed to create a legal product specifically for New Zealand SMEs with our goal to deliver value and help businesses grow. Through our partnership with The Icehouse we are able to further strengthen our offerings for SMEs as well as championing the incredible innovation we see every day within the Waikato business community.



Regional Partnership

The Icehouse and leading New Zealand law firm Tompkins Wake are thrilled to announce a regional partnership for the Waikato and Bay of Plenty regions with immediate effect. 

Both organisations have long supported NZ entrepreneurs and SMEs by giving them the skills, clarity and support they need to grow their businesses and unleash NZ’s economic potential.

Tompkins Wake will contribute $15,000 in scholarships for the first year of the partnership. This will consist of 2 x Owner Manager Programme $5,000 scholarships and 5 x Taking Your Business Forward $1,000 scholarships.




Tompkins Wake has been a central figure on the Waikato and Bay Of Plenty's legal stage for nearly 100 years and, while the firm’s growth has seen a shift to working with corporates and large businesses over the past 10 years, it has always had the SME market at its heart.

As a result, Tompkins Wake launched AdviSME in May 2019 – a technology-driven legal service which uses automation tools and AI to provide innovative and affordable legal solutions for SMEs.

It makes access to legal information less daunting and more cost-effective for small businesses. AdviSME is built around a suite of free resources and automated documents and fixed pricing.
