Werner van Harselaar


Expertise in immigration and employment law.

"I work with a great range of clients, including employers, medical centers, migrants and private client management. I still handle the routine day to day legal transactions and also represent clients in the District Court, Environment Court, Employment Relations Authority/Employment Court, Liquor Licensing Authority, Gambling Commission and the Immigration and Protection Tribunal. As a Notary Public I handle legal documentation for overseas jurisdictions.”

A skilled problem-solver and advocate, Werner takes pride in a solution-based approach and unpretentious attitude to law.

Alongside his Bachelor of Laws, he has a Master of Education (Distinction), Dip. Teaching and a Bachelor of Physical Education. His practice of law began in the year 2000 after working as a teacher. Werner has a commitment to the community and serves on 3-4 NFP organizations at any one time. 

Away from work, Werner loves life and is immersed in sport, good journalism, chain sawing, fishing, renovation work and time with family.

Werner, in four words: go to war with.
