Buddle Findlay welcomes back two senior lawyers

Buddle Findlay has welcomed back to the fold two senior associates.

Mark Mulholland has joined the firm after more than two years with Clifford Chance in London. He specialises in resource management, environmental, and Māori law.

Mulholland, who is based in the firm’s Wellington office, has a particular focus on the consenting of major energy, transport, and water infrastructure. He also advises on processes associated with consenting, including on appeals, plan changes, and compulsory acquisition.

Lara Wood has returned to Buddle Findlay in Auckland. She moved back after two years as an in-house lawyer at Westpac. She also spent more than two years as a senior associate at DLA Piper, both in New Zealand and in Australia.

A part of Buddle Findlay’s banking and financial services team, Wood specialises in funds management and regulatory advice related to financial services, products, and markets.

Buddle Findlay promoted 11 to senior roles in January, including eight senior associates. The firm promoted Natasha Wilson, Nicola Ridder, and Thaddeus Ryan to special counsel in that round.

Buddle Findlay was recently named one of the six law firms among the 100 New Zealand companies that are most desirable to soon-to-be graduates.
