" Incorporating the Practice of Rob Webber & Associates "

OUR

TEAM

Finding the right team members is no mean feat. As well as being highly skilled legal beagles, a Mac&Coer needs to share our values of integrity, value and respect. It’s not negotiable that all staff are approachable, warm and friendly and that they genuinely like their clients and the role we play for them.

 

Good value is important. Good values are imperative.

I'm Elinor!

Jan McNamara - Director

Jan has worked in the legal profession for over 25 years, initially as a legal secretary before qualifying as a lawyer.

 

She has extensive experience in property and commercial matters, spending time in big city firms and in a boutique entertainment law firm.

 

Her warm, straightforward approach is highly regarded by her clients, many who have travelled with her throughout her career.

 

There is a secret belief in the office that she founded Mac&Co. so she finally had a dog friendly workplace and Elinor could join her each day. (You’ll meet Ellie when you come into our offices). Jan is slowly learning French so she can improve her appreciation of French wine and food.

Anne Armstrong - Senior Associate 

 

Anne has been in practice for 18 years and has experience in both residential and commercial property, trusts, estates and wills. She also provides general commercial advice for private and corporate clients.

 

After practicing within a large law firm for many years, Anne now thrives as a part of the close-knit team at Mac&Co. She provides sensible advice, gets on well with clients and – like her favourite Black Caps - gives her A game every day.

Zoe Cooper - Associate

A graduate of Otago University, Zoe has worked in boutique law firms in Auckland, developing a strong background in residential and commercial property transactions, leasing, business acquisitions and subdivision development.

 

In addition, Zoe has experience in trust formation work, asset protection and estate planning and administration. She enjoys getting to know her clients and building the long-term relationships that lead to the best possible advice.

 

After hours, Zoe is committed to nurturing her relationships with friends and family. She plays a mean game of touch rugby and works hard at chasing her fitness goals at the gym. This is a good thing, as Zoe’s other loves are good food and wine with a favourite night out cited as trying out a new restaurant!

Kelly Barnard - Registered Legal Executive / Associate

 

While Kelly has enjoyed working in major firms in both Christchurch and Auckland, she’s mightily pleased to have opted for the boutique friendliness and teamwork of Mac&Co. She also confesses to a soft spot for Elinor, the office’s resident Jack Russell, and her fantastic clients.

 

As a property specialist, Kelly’s skills in subdivisions and settlements are extraordinary; it makes her a real asset to the Mac & Co. legal team.

 

Kelly is also a skilled equestrian extraordinaire although - despite our love of pets - her horse doesn’t join her at the office.

Rob Webber - Consultant

Rob’s firm (Rob Webber & Associates) was merged into Mac & Co’s in April 2019.  Rob has a large client base some of which he has been acting for over the last 40 years.  He has been a partner in large law firms and more recently a sole practitioner at Rob Webber & Associates.  

 

Rob has extensive experience in most general areas of law including all commercial matters, conveyancing, wills, trusts, estates, employment and some litigation work. 

Rob is available to provide advice on Tuesdays through to Fridays (trying not to work on Mondays).

 

Outside of work Rob spends most of his time in Mangawhai where he has many interests including looking after his and Lorraine’s olive orchard which is producing olive oil, fishing (or trying to catch a fish), swimming, catching up with friends and visiting his granddaughters in Nelson.

Outside the office you will find Andrew anywhere from the tennis court to the middle of the Hauraki Gulf.

Delwyn Barnett - Senior Legal Executive

 

Having worked in the legal industry for 30 years, Delwyn is a general practitioner particularly focusing on the areas of property, trusts, commercial and wills and powers of attorney, together with general advice.  Delwyn's straightforward communication style means her clients understand the process.  Having spent considerable years in two boutique legal practices she enjoys getting to know her clients and assisting the whole family with their legal needs.

Outside of the office, she enjoys photography of all genres, and the editing is always fun too. You can often find her on beaches on her walk (with a camera not too far away ... just in case).

Haydon Mattson - Solicitor

Haydon is extremely passionate about the law and after receiving the highest mark in the Sale of Land paper at University, he fits in well with the other property specialists at Mac&Co.

 

Haydon enjoys general practice as it is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get.  His property law expertise comes in handy in all areas of residential property work – including agreements for sales and purchase, loan refinancing, relationship property, KiwiSaver drawdowns and building contracts.  He enjoys working with clients to create personalised trusts, wills and powers of attorney which provides peace of mind for life's unexpected ups and downs.

 

In the weekends you will find Haydon exploring the depths of the Upper Harbour in search of the perfect fishing spot. Sometimes his spots are so secret even the fish do not know it.
