Ex-partner returns to Martelli McKegg

Martelli McKegg has welcomed a former partner of the firm back to the fold.

John Kenyon re-joined the firm in late July. His legal career spans 26 years, with a specialisation in property law.

He has handled a wide range of property matters, such as investment and due diligence, leasing and subdivision and development. He has also negotiated and documented commercial property sales, purchases, leases and building contracts.

Kenyon took a break from the legal profession to work in the aviation industry. He spent some time as a flight instructor at Ardmore, and flew for PNG Air over a seven-year stint.

He proceeded to captain ATR72-600s in Papua New Guinea.

“Throughout the period, John has kept a keen eye on property matters in New Zealand and was an active client of the firm in respect of his directorship and trustee property interests. This gives him a unique perspective,” Martelli McKegg said in an announcement on its website.

Kenyon will be acting as a consultant within the firm’s commercial property team.

Martelli McKegg also promoted Tim Orr to partner in May. He is a specialist in trusts, estates and property, and has been part of the firm since 2017.

Meanwhile, litigation expert Jacque Lethbridge, who joined the firm’s partnership last year, was made the vice president for Auckland on the New Zealand Law Society board in April.
