Harmans is pleased to announce that as from 1 February 2020 Mark Sherry has been appointed as the firm’s new Managing Partner. He will replace Graeme Riach who has been at the helm for the past nine years. During that period Graeme has led the firm through some challenging times post-earthquake including retrieval of our IT equipment, files and deeds from the old city office, over-seeing the Papanui premises fit-out and successfully navigating Harmans back to its roots with ...the re-opening of our new Central City office. Graeme is looking forward to devoting more of his time to his civil and commercial litigation practice along with an increasing workload from his Law Society Council role.
Mark joined Harmans in 1995 as a graduate lawyer, and became a partner in 2002. He is a leader of our large commercial and property team, specialising in most areas of commercial law including franchising, commercial conveyancing, property development, leasing matters and business sales and purchases. He brings a wealth of experience to his new role including management, finance, strategy and policy. Mark will expand his duties and oversee the management of the firm while continuing to develop strategy and growth at Board level. He will, of course, continue to take care of his clients with the same high level of service.
We hope you will join us in congratulating Mark.
