We're thrilled to bring you the scoop on the recent Business After 5 networking event hosted by Luscombe Legal, a boutique law firm specializing in Immigration Law. 

This event was a not-to-be-missed opportunity on many fronts. Firstly, it was a golden chance to gain valuable knowledge about Immigration New Zealand regulations that can impact your business. Secondly, it was an excellent platform to build meaningful connections with like-minded individuals in the Hawke's Bay business community.

Mark Luscombe, the driving force behind Luscombe Legal, took the stage to share the firm's remarkable journey. It all started right here in Napier in 2004. In 2008, they made a strategic move to Hastings, aligning themselves with employers and the migrant community in the region. It was a bold move that laid the foundation for their incredible success.

Their expertise isn't limited to one industry. Luscombe Legal has partnered with employers across nine diverse sectors. Remarkably, 35% of their current work is employer-led, with 90% of these employers being provincial businesses right here in Hawkes Bay.

Mark Luscombe also shed light on the dynamics of immigration policy during election years. It's no secret that immigration policy can become a political football, with promises flying from all sides. 


Delicious food catered by Carrs Kitchen in Hastings ensured attendees were well-fed, and plenty of networking time allowed meaningful connections to flourish.

And the moment everyone was waiting for - Anil Dumasia from Image Central emerged as the prize winner, securing a Corporate Table for 6 and game tickets to the electrifying clash between HB MAGPIES and MANAWATU.

In conclusion, Luscombe Legal's Business After 5 networking event was an eye-opening experience filled with valuable insights and a sense of community. It's clear that they are more than just a law firm; they are dedicated partners in helping individuals and businesses navigate the complex world of immigration. Keep an eye out for our future events and join us in shaping a brighter future for Hawke's Bay. Cheers to knowledge, connection, and progress!
