Announcement of Promotion

Posted by on 1 December 2017 | Comments

The partners of Harmans are delighted to announce that Jessica Marshall and Deirdre Fell have recently been promoted to Senior Associates of the firm.

Jessica has built a great reputation in the areas of property and commercial law, including residential and commercial conveyancing, business acquisitions and disposals, franchising, hospitality, commercial leasing and commercial contracts.

Deirdre manages our busy Estates team. Her areas of expertise include High Court grants (including complex applications), general estate and life tenancy administration, resealing overseas grants, asset protection, trusts and trust administration, estate planning and wills, and conveyancing.

Deirdre is a Registered Legal Executive, and it is understood that less than 10% of legal executives have been promoted to Associate and even less to Senior Associate level in New Zealand law firms. So a special achievement indeed for Deirdre.

Being appointed Senior Associates at Harmans recognises the experience, ability and quality of service that Jessica and Deirdre each bring to the firm and our clients.
