    Mahi Tangaere has worked in diverse roles including Foreshore and Seabed negotiations, and in the education and immigration sectors for over 15 years.

    Mahi currently operates her own law firm, West Dome Legal and an education business NZeducateme.

    Mahi’s variety of administrative roles in her early career has provided her with a unique insight into New Zealand’s regulatory frameworks and educational landscape. This provided her with the insight to establish NZeducateme.

    NZeducateme traditionally operated in the student placement space. It is currently also working with overseas assessors to have the qualifications of New Zealand based hospitality workers assessed and awarded internationally recognized qualifications.

    Mahi’s law firm works, West Dome Legal, offers services exclusively in the area of immigration. Mahi works with a breadth of clients from Immigration Protection Tribunal Appeals to accredited employers and their staff. This has enabled Mahi to gain considerable insight into the communities and employers that she has works with.

    Mahi’s focus emphasizes that the core value systems of Maori and most Asian countries are similar or complimentary. This enables the development of business relationships for long term mutual benefit.

    Mahi is currently the Vice-Chairman of the ASEAN New Zealand Business Council and the Vietnam Chapter Chair. Mahi is currently on the Board of the Wellington Regional Chamber of Commerce and Taiwan New Zealand Trade Development. She is a member of the New Zealand Association of Immigration Professionals and also a member of the Wellington Immigration and Refugee Law Committee.
