Where are they now?

After 12 great years, McKenzie Ellis is no longer actively trading. But the two principals, Jill Pitches and Jackie Mulligan, continue to work in legal recruitment in different roles.


Jill has joined lexvoco in the newly established Auckland office.

lexvoco provides 'new law' services, helping in-house legal teams work better, providing experienced in-house counsel to assist legal teams when they're under-resourced or there's a skill gap - quickly, flexibly and cost-effectively.

lexvoco also help with continuous improvement and strategy for legal teams and design technology solutions.

If your in-house team could benefit from these services, then get in touch with Jill.


Jackie has joined leading commercial firm Simpson Grierson.

She recruits nationwide for all legal and non-legal roles (excluding summer clerk and graduate recruitment) in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

If you are a lawyer with some solid experience behind you (not necessarily top-tier) looking for a new opportunity to join a great firm, then get in touch with Jackie.
