PLN Founder and Head of Legal Services John Ridgway said New Zealand is the gateway to the Pacific for many companies looking to do business in the region.
“We are so pleased to have Cavell Leitch on board, and it is clearly very important for PLN to have the right partner in New Zealand to drive and facilitate business in and through the Pacific,” he said.
