Delivering Sustainable Outcomes

whanonga pono mai

“Manaaki whenua, manaaki tangata, haere whakamua”

Respecting the environment, respecting people and delivering sustainable outcomes

“Nāku te rourou, nāu te rourou, ka ora ai te iwi”

Working with you to achieve success

“He tangata kī tahi”

Doing what I say I will when I say I will

“I orea te tuatara ka patu ki waho”

Problem solving, creative thinking and effective advocacy
About me | Ko wai au

Vicki Morrison-Shaw

Ngāpuhi, Ngāti Pākehā | BCom LLB​

I obtain consents for people and organisations to establish new businesses, carryout new activities, and to have their say on developments or activities that may affect them. I assist people to understand the implications that resource management plans and policies may have on their interests and I advocate for them and represent their interests throughout any hearing processes.  My focus is on delivering sustainable outcomes in a cost effective timely manner.

I have a broad range of experience in a variety of different roles including as a director of a boutique law firm, in-house counsel for a land development company, a development manager for an iwi consultancy firm, and a research and policy officer for a local government organisation. This diversified experience has enabled me to provide practical, bespoke, timely and cost effective advice and legal services to clients.
