LOD: Lawyers on Demand has welcomed two leaders in New Zealand.

Andrew de Boyett has been given the role of director of client solutions and tasked to build and strengthen LOD’s relationships with clients, coordinate and drive business development activities, and grow and promote the firm’s brand and reputation. He made the move from Right Tack Consulting in Auckland, where he was principal consultant. He was also previously in senior roles at Kensington Swan and Grant Thornton in New Zealand, as well as Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer in the UK.

Jason Mitchell has joined LOD as senior manager of legal, risk and compliance services. He moved to the firm from the Bank of New Zealand, where he was previously compliance manager and in-house counsel. He also worked in private practice at Russell McVeagh. LOD said that Mitchell “enjoys the variety that his role at LOD brings and the opportunity to work with a diverse range of people and clients.”
