About McKenzie

My Career to Date

I began my career in private law firms where I gained experience in a number of areas of law. Before joining Gibson Sheat, I was the in-house Commercial Solicitor for a government agency.

My approach to working with my clients

I provide timely and accurate advice that takes into account each client’s individual needs and circumstances. I like getting to know my clients – it makes for a nice experience working together, and it helps me to provide more meaningful advice.

My time working as in-house counsel has given me insight into the workings of organisations as they conduct business. As a result, I’ve developed a practical approach to how I engage with clients and how I provide advice to meet their needs.

The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given

Be kind, work hard, stay humble.

A rewarding experience I've had at work

I’ve been fortunate to work on some pretty interesting projects with really fantastic clients. It’s hard to pin down one ‘most’ rewarding experience - I find equal reward in helping someone purchase their first home as I do helping a corporate client through a large transaction. My favourite part of being a lawyer is seeing my clients succeed in what they’ve set out to do, and knowing that I played a small part in that success.

What stimulates me

I like helping a client achieve a goal or reach a milestone. I also like being intellectually challenged and tackling tricky legal issues in a creative way.

What I enjoy outside of work

I like being outdoors when the Wellington weather permits. I also really enjoy dinner parties, wine tasting, playing tennis and watching most sports.

If I wasn’t a lawyer I’d be...

I’ve wanted to be a lawyer since I was very young, and I really enjoy my work. If I had to choose something else, it would probably be something along a similar vein – an accountant, financial advisor or a small business owner perhaps. a cooking show.
