Alan Pierce has left Hawkes Bay, to support his wife Adrienne who is seeking election as an MP representing Palmerston North.  Alan’s assistant Sue Patchett has also relocated to Palmerston North. Alan joined the firm straight out of university and Sue has been with us for almost 20 years, and we will miss both of them.    Partners Jodi Lett and Simon Wilton and the rest of our Property, Commercial and Personal Services Team remain available to provide services to the firm’s clients who have previously dealt with Alan, and we are currently seeking to add qualified lawyers to that Team. Partner Mark von Dadelszen in the Civil Litigation team and lawyers Martin Wall & Jess MacLellan in the Family team are also available. If you would like to make a time for either Jodi or Simon to introduce themselves to you, please call Joan Wootton to make an appointment.  Of course there would not be any charge for that appointment.
