Ezekiel Hudspith (Environment and Planning, Wellington) and Pauline Ho (Banking and Financial Markets, Auckland) have been promoted to Special Counsel. Ezekiel Hudspith specialises in all aspects of the Resource Management Act and related legislation, helping clients to obtain resource consents and designations, and make submissions on changes to
district and regional plans.
He advises government and local government agencies carrying out large
infrastructure projects, including options assessment (MCA) processes and obtaining RMA approvals.

He is very deserving of this promotion and has a very bright career ahead of him.’
Pauline Ho plays a substantial role in Kensington Swan’s Banking and Financial Markets team in Auckland.

addition to the team. Although she has been at Kensington Swan less than a year, she has already proved herself a valued member of the team and deserving of this role.’
