Kāhui Legal is pleased to announce that our new Managing Partner is Kiri Tahana of Te Arawa who has over 23 years of legal experience from both within Aotearoa and internationally (Dubai, Sydney and London). Kiri understands the needs of both clients and lawyers. Our people are key and she is excited about continuing to build a team of exceptional and passionate lawyers who understand our clients’ aspirations and challenges. While these are exciting times for Māori with the Māori economy estimated to be worth $50 billion, our people are also incarcerated at record rates and are experiencing inequality and poverty. We are committed to providing legal services across te ao Māori to help create a better future for all and to ensure our legal system reflects tikanga and te reo Māori. We are excited about doing this in an innovative way that puts our people at the heart of our practice. He aha te mea nui o te ao, he tāngata, he tāngata, he tāngata.
