John Mackay

Company & Business Law, Property Law, Asset Protection and Estate Planning & Administration  

John Mackay is a down-to-earth and straightforward lawyer. He has the ability to translate complicated legal language into plain English so his clients can clearly understand what is happening. This approach is what draws a wide range of clients with an ever wider variety of legal requirements.

He has been described as "timely, knowledgeable and practical" and "one of the best" by clients. He looks after both individuals and businesses. 

While John specialises in company, commercial, property, insolvency and asset planning, he enjoys a life long association with the road transport industry. That connection continues through legal advice to TR Group Limited, New Zealand's market leader in trucking solutions. 

As a member of the Institute of Directors, John is continuing to develop his corporate governance skills and is putting these skills in to practice on the advisory board of Rorisons RMD Limited.  Rorison's quarry, process and supply lime and serpentine to the rural sector in addition to farming (both dairy and dry stock) in it own right.

John spars at Tauranga Boxing Club and believes his sporting interests are a great asset in the legal world where quick thinking and determination are the traits that most often lead to successful outcomes.


Thank you for the dedicated effort you and your staff have made assisting us with the very successful restructuring and refinancing of the company. It was a relatively complex and very drawn out process. You had an excellent grasp of the many issues and handled a huge amount of paper to bring it all to completion. An excellent team effort.
