New Russell McVeagh partnerships

Liz Blythe, Anna Crosbie, Emmeline Rushbrook and Nathaniel Walker join Russell McVeagh's partnership.
Board Chair Malcolm Crotty says the firm is proud to recognise these talented leaders, whose appointments are a result of their exceptional relationship and management skills, combined with market-leading expertise.

"Our new partners are highly regarded for their integrity and people-centred leadership styles they bring to managing both their team and client needs. They are role models for the profession and add wide-ranging experience, which strengthens our ability to provide clients with the confidence to achieve their strategic goals," he said.

A further partner promotion is expected to be announced within the next month, subject to meeting New Zealand Law Society requirements, bolstering the firm's new partner count to five.
