Auld Brewer Mazengarb & McEwen acts for various post settlement governance entities, pan-iwi organisations in the farming and health sectors and whānau and hapū based businesses. We also act for central Government in implementing housing (social and private) initiatives on Māori land.

We assist with drafting governance documents and commercial contracts.   In doing so, we are conscious of the values and cultural context which underpin Māori entities’ governance and operations.
