“I am immensely proud to take on the role. Jared led the firm through seven years of strong growth and we are well positioned to continue this growth whilst delivering high levels of client service,” Maw said.

Hayley Buckley, Wynn Williams partner and chairperson said it is an exciting time for the firm, which has experienced significant national growth over the last few years.

“The board and our new national managing partner will continue to harness the strategic opportunities that have arisen from this growth,” she said.

Ormsby, who won Managing Partner of the Year at the 2017 NZ Law Awards, is set to retire from the partnership on 31 October.
