"Lowndes Jordan has a highly collaborative culture underpinned by real depth of experience across a range of practice areas. I am particularly enjoying having the financial markets, M&A, start-ups and general business expertise to draw on in my litigation practice,” Sussock said.

Before Lowndes Jordan, Sussock was most recently with a specialist litigation practice. Before that, she was crown counsel in the public commercial team at the Crown Law Office. During her time at Crown Law, she provided advice and acted for Treasury, the Ministries of Economic Development, Health, Transport, Education and Social Development and the Commerce Commission.
