McCaw Lewis launched the Pasifika Law Initiative as an opportunity to develop our current professional relationship within the Pacific community.  This initiative was undertaken due to the growing Pacific population in the region, our expertise in legal areas relevant to Pacific businesses, organisations and professionals and our Pasifika connection through members of our team.

In 2016, McCaw Lewis became the official law firm for the Waikato Pacific Business Network, an organisation focussed on building a more resilient Pacific community network in the Waikato region.  McCaw Lewis also shares Waikato Pacific Business Network’s vision of fostering relationships, adding value and creating opportunities for our Pacific peoples.
