Madison FaberLegal Executive and Special Counsel

Madison Faber joined Norris Echetebu Law in July of 2021 and supports our attorneys and clients as the firm’s NZ Special Counsel and US Legal Executive, as part of the team who handles all elements of our firm’s executive, business strategy, and legal services. Maddy’s New Zealand legal experience is key in her contributions to the firm and its clients, as she brings a unique ‘Kiwi’ perspective to the firm’s services and legal counsel related to US Business, US Commercial, US Immigration, and US Entertainment & Copyright Law.

Maddy’s background is in a family-owned NZ business where she worked closely with the CEO, and she believes it is her understanding of business strategy and practicality that allows her to serve our clients best. She is passionate about seeing Kiwis thrive in the US market and, as a big believer that effective legal advice can be the backbone of business success, is proud to be a part of the team that helps develop that potential.

She obtained a Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Arts from the University of Wellington and was admitted as a Barrister and Solicitor of the High Court of New Zealand in March 2022. Maddy is planning to sit the New York Bar Exam in 2023, to dual qualify as a US-barred attorney.

Maddy has always enjoyed solving a good puzzle and found a love for this in law and dispute resolution. In the little free time she has, she loves to spend time with her family, grab a bite to eat in Auckland’s fantastic food scene (she has lots of Wellington recommendations), write, and spend time with her nose buried in a good book.
