Three partners at prominent Auckland law firm Meredith Connell are leaving the firm.

Chris Moore and Steve Woodfield are leaving to set up an Auckland branch of Wellington-based commercial law firm Greenwood Roche Chisnall.

Senior prosecutor Ross Burns is also leaving, reportedly to retire.

Meredith Connell carries out the majority of criminal prosecutions for the Crown in greater Auckland, led by Simon Moore, a Crown Solicitor.

Woodfield, a commercial law specialist, said his and Chris Moore's departures were not connected to cutbacks in the Crown Solicitor network budget.

''It's absolutely nothing to do with Meredith Connell at all. It's just a new opportunity that presented.''

Woodfield said Burn's retirement was unconnected and as far as he knew, there were no staff pay cuts happening at the office.

Chris Moore is the Law Society's Auckland branch president
