The partners and staff mourn the passing of Kay Keam

By Mike Worsnop - 5 Dec 2019

The partners and staff of Martelli McKegg Lawyers mourn the sudden and unexpected passing of Kay Keam. Kay was a much loved and respected partner of Martelli McKegg having spent over 17 years at the firm. She was an exceptional lawyer, mentor and friend. Despite the pressures of her busy and specialised practice, Kay always maintained a calm, assured and compassionate demeanour.

Kay was a keen contributor to the Law Society through her voluntary service on the ADLS Property Law Committee and as a NZLS Standards Committee member. She was highly respected by those in the legal profession and by her clients, many of whom became her longstanding friends and friends of the firm.

Within the last few years Kay completed her LLM (with honours) exemplifying her commitment to being the best lawyer she could be. By her example and by her patience with others, she taught and inspired her partners and young lawyers within the firm alike. Kay is no longer with us, but the memories she gave us, the example she set for us and the many other intangible gifts she bestowed on us will continue undimmed.

Kay is and will remain sorely missed and will always be remembered for the great lawyer and beautiful person that she was.

Our deepest sympathies go to Richard, Robbie and Sarah and Kay's wider family.  We grieve with you.
