From a client

 

Sean, I just wanted to thank you for everything you’ve done for me over the last couple of months.

When I first came to you I felt helpless and stuck. You offered me a practical solution and I can’t thank you enough for the professional, competent and knowledgeable way you approached everything.

You gave me back my voice, my hope, and my dignity.

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

 

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.

Pam Walklin, General Manager – National New Energy Development Centre Establishment, Venture Taranaki

 

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.

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

 

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

 

We mainly deal with Marie Callander for our legal requirements, but in the course of the last few years we have had dealings with all of the partners, and a number of other ABMM staff.
Without exception, we have found them to provide a first class service meeting and regularly exceeding our expectations, and they take a genuine interest in us and our aspirations.
