Senior partner Graeme Elvin described Bywater-Lutman as “a great addition” to the firm and his appointment “has come at an important time.”

“It’s not only about outstanding people, for us that’s a given, but also the need for extensive legal experience,” Elvin said. “We’ve seen a rapid growth in the Bay of Plenty and Jason is excited to use his expertise to help shape the region now, and in the future, and I’m looking forward to seeing him flourish in the Mackenzie Elvin environment.”

Bywater-Lutman’s appointment follows the recent promotions of Rebecca Savage and Thomas Refoy-Butler to the firm’s partnership. The three, along with partner Tom Elvin, make up the second generation of partners at MacKenzie Elvin.

Bywater-Lutman expressed excitement over his new role, saying: “The Bay’s thriving property and commercial sector has created unparalleled growth opportunities”

“I’m proud to be part of the region’s development and to help clients obtain excellent outcomes in their endeavours,” he said. “Joining the successful and well-established partnership at Mackenzie Elvin Law gives me the chance to offer clients customised and full legal services with an exceptional team behind me.”
