Mackenzie Elvin is a progressive Tauranga law firm, assisting clients throughout the wider Bay of Plenty.

We provide quality legal advice on all matters from high level business transactions, complex relationship, trust and estate issues, to personal or family disputes.

Our founding partner Fiona Mackenzie established the firm in 1980 juggling motherhood with her legal career. That family friendly ethos and desire to help local families and businesses succeed still runs strong in the firm today.

With husband Graeme Elvin, an accomplished commercial lawyer and trust specialist, and Marcus Wilkins, an experienced property lawyer and agribusiness specialist, the trio of partners have built a reputation for excellent legal service.  The team continues to grow and Tom Elvin’s admission to the partnership on 1 May 2018 ensures we continue to evolve as a forward-thinking, progressive law firm.

This experienced team all bring different strengths and expertise to the business, and strong relationships are central to everything we do. We emphasise collaboration to ensure the best possible outcomes for our clients.

For a tailored solution for your specific situation, choose us as your trusted legal advisor.
