Some may consider starting a legal career in the maelstrom of a global pandemic a daunting task, but I for one am excited to face it as a part of the Regulatory team at Rice Speir.
I have joined Rice Speir as a Law Clerk after finishing my LLB (Honours)/BA and with some previous legal experience already under my belt. I spent two years at a large litigation firm and prior to that, clerked with another full-service firm. I have worked on litigation matters across the spectrum; from criminal and regulatory prosecutions, to civil proceedings, and even animal welfare.
At university, I looked to develop my advocacy skills. I was a finalist at the High Court and New Zealand Bar Association Sentencing Advocacy competition, and a member of the University of Auckland’s Willem C Vis International Arbitration Moot team. While a member of the Vis Moot team, I got to do a classic Kiwi OE which allowed me to meet and compete with up-and-coming young legal minds from all across the world.
I am looking forward to working with Nathan, Simon and the regulatory team as they continue to provide innovative and flexible solutions in these unprecedented times!
