I really appreciate all Marie Callander’s  work on our Constitution. It went remarkably smoothly and we got a great outcome.

Michael Parker, Chief Executive, Presbyterian Support Southland

ABMM and in particular, Marie Callander provided professional, expert and trusted advice as we navigated the complexities of investigating and establishing a new entity, as part of Venture Taranaki’s NNEDC establishment project.

Marie and the ABMM team were highly responsive to the demands of tight and sometimes shifting deadlines and Marie felt like part of our team, throughout the 12-month project.

Papa Rererangi I Puketapu Limited (New Plymouth Airport) have worked closely with ABMM (particularly Allen Mazengarb) since our inception in 2017. PRIP have worked with ABMM across a variety of legal matters and value their professional and accommodating approach. ABMM staff have taken the time to understand our business and tailor advice to suit our requirements and meet our objectives.

Richard Buttimore, Operations Manager, Papa Rererangi I Puketapu Limited

The ABMM team guided me through the process carefully and showed a willingness to understand what my business was trying to achieve and also what my business and staff were experiencing.

Neil Penno, Director, TSH Audio & Video

A key aspect of our working relationship with ABMM is the genuine business partnership we have in place. Our experience with ABMM’s employment relations team is highly successful due to the trust, collaborative approach, their high level of expertise and the knowledge they have acquired on understanding our people, the challenges and diversity within our businesses and the Local Government environment, and ultimately the advice they provide. The ABMM team, in particular Sean has professionally and pragmatically guided and supported us through significant change processes, industrial and employment relations matters to ensure outcomes are the best that they can be for our organisation.

NPDC Human Resources Team

Sean showed kindness and compassion as he supported me to resolve a difficult employment problem. When I felt overwhelmed, he worked with me to ensure that my interests and wellbeing were always at the forefront of all decisions. I felt well informed during the process and always understood what was coming next. This helped me to feel prepared and never rushed or pressured into making a decision. For example, during proceedings he took the time to write up on a white board the pros and cons, what was reasonable to expect and what was unrealistic, so I could feel in control and make informed decisions. I can’t thank Sean enough as due to his expertise and skills it ensured I had a great outcome. I highly recommend Sean.

Monique, an employee client

There are lawyers, and there are lawyers. And then there are exceptional lawyers. Between them, Garry Anderson and Phil McCarthy not only demonstrated a deep but practical understanding of the law, but also engineered an approach that both recognised and made the client (me) a member of the professional team. The result? Their diligent guidance helped me navigate through a complicated commercial issue, producing a great outcome. A far different approach from other professional advisors whose arrogance and indifference towards the client all-too-often predominate. Garry and Phil truly exemplify the professional role of “trusted advisors.”

Dr Wendy R London, Director, London Consulting Limited

I was in a situation recently where I felt extremely lost and didn't know which way to turn.  Chelsea showed compassion towards me and the situation I was in and made me feel safe and secure in the knowledge that she would take care of me.  She regularly checked in with me and kept me in the loop the whole time, guiding me through important decisions that I had to make about my future. Thank you Chelsea for everything you did for me and my family.
