McGarry specialises in property law, including development, acquisitions, disposals, and all aspects of leasing. He often leads the firm’s property support function on multi-disciplinary and M&A transactions and is highly regarded by his colleagues within the top-tier boutique network of firms in Auckland.

His practice includes providing full support to listed and institutional-grade organisations and helping clients meet the more dynamic requirements of a stable of high-profile private owners and developers and family offices. He also has a growing practice in the iwi sector, and he regularly assists on strategic and commercial decision-making within such portfolios.

McGarry began his legal career with Chapman Tripp, where he held a solicitor position for over three years. He joined TBB as a senior solicitor in 2016, and was elevated to associate in 2020.

Apart from his legal work, he holds the rank of captain in the New Zealand Army Reserve and is actively involved in the Auckland Officers’ Club, a membership club populated by serving and retired commissioned officers of the Navy, Army, and Air Force.
