Associate and solicitor join award-winning team
The specialist firm has appointed Megan Vant and Alice Anderson, according to the New Zealand Law Society.
Vant, who has been appointed an associate, made her return to Dundas Street after four years of absence, which she spent raising her children. She is an expert in all aspects of employment law and has experience working both in private practice and in in-house roles at central and local government departments, the firm said. She has studied te reo Māori in her spare time.
Anderson, Ngāi Tahu, is not only a specialist in employment law, but also in immigration and Māori legal issues. She represents employees and employers in the full range of employment law matters. She is also experienced in disciplinary processes and dispute resolution.
Anderson – who is a member of Te Hunga Rōia Māori o Aotearoa, the Māori Law Society – has a strong interest in incorporating tikanga-based values into the workplace and in dispute-resolution processes.
Dundas Street Employment Lawyers, led by managing partner Susan Hornsby-Geluk, won the employment law specialist firm of the year in last year’s New Zealand Law Awards.
