Norris Ward McKinnon (NWM) has promoted Angela Scarlett and Carla Rule to the role of associate.

Scarlett works with the corporate and commercial team, while Rule is a registered legal executive in the firm’s private clients team. Both women have experience working overseas in London and Dublin, respectively.

Scarlett began her legal career working in litigation, but quickly made the jump to corporate work. She practised with a Magic Circle firm in London prior to joining NWM, and has particular expertise in developing bespoke clauses.

“Having worked in a large commercial law firm in London, I soon realised that the culture and environment at NWM was a great place to work. I feel fortunate to have the balance of both challenging work and a collaborative supportive team environment that has enabled me to progress within the firm,” Scarlett said.

Meanwhile, Rule was introduced to working in law in 2001 when she took on a position as legal secretary for the property team of a law firm while she was residing in Dublin. Since then, she has been drawn to working with first home buyers.

On her return to New Zealand, she pursued her legal executive diploma while working as a property legal assistant. She went on to join NWM as the PA to a commercial business partner, where she eventually became a legal executive following her registration with Legal Executives NZ.

“Fast forward 16 years and I am still loving my position at NWM,” Rule said. “I predominately deal with residential property, specialising in first home buyers, but I am expanding my knowledge, expertise and client base further to include the greater private client field, specifically succession planning and asset protection.”
