For the winners and finalists, recognition at the New Zealand Law Awards is a career highlight that leaves a lasting impact. The awards offer a chance to reflect on and acknowledge great work across the industry. Watch last year’s highlights.

“The team has had a massive year, and it’s true recognition for what they’re really good at – helping clients for longer, helping them with their lives,” said Kristy Redfern, general manager of corporate services and general counsel at AIA New Zealand, upon winning Financial Services In-House Team of the Year in 2019.

“I’m very excited to win the award,” said Andrew Cordner, director of legal at Fonterra, of his In-House Lawyer of the Year win in 2018. “It’s obviously not just about me but the team. It’s been a very busy year and challenging for the company, so I’m really, really excited about this.”

Nominations are open to all members of the legal services market in New Zealand until 3 July. The process of submitting a nomination is straightforward and free.

Finalists will be announced on the NZ Lawyer website and via our online channels in September. Winners will be revealed during the black-tie awards gala on 12 November at the Cordis in Auckland, and will receive extensive media coverage on NZ Lawyer.
