Bay of Plenty Lawyers Expand

Bay of Plenty Lawyers Expand

LawFuel.co.nz - NZ Law Jobs and Law News - Bay of Plenty lawyers Holland Beckett have acquired their second Rotorua law practice in recent months with the acquisition of  MccKenchnie Quirke & Lewis, which iseffective from 1 February and follows the firm’s purchase of Olphert & Associates at the end of last year.

LawFuel.co.nz reports that Holland Beckett, a nine-partner practice, purchased Olphert & Associates last November as a result of health issues experienced by Olphert principal Jon Olphert. Holland Beckett have had a presence in Rotorua since 2011 but have been looking to expand their interests in both Rotorua and the Eastern Bay of Plenty.

Hobec partner Simon Collett said the firm’s strategy was growth. “Our strategic objective in this is quite simple – we need to continue to grow. Our view is that the days of the medium sized law firm may be numbered.”

“To survive a law firm may either have to be very small and specialised or large and full service. A large firm is able to do things more efficiently. It has the mass to ensure that overheads, systems, resources and training are optimised. In recent years our growth has enabled us to attract talented staff and we continue to receive enquiries from exceptional candidates."
