NZ Law Awards to celebrate in-house legal achievements
Spark New Zealand, 2019 In-House Team of the Year

Nominations for the 16th annual New Zealand Law Awards are being made in huge numbers—and the field remains open to those who have yet to take part.

Presented by NZ Lawyer, this prestigious event celebrates and recognizes the very best of the nation’s legal services market.

Among the 29 categories are those focusing on in-house legal achievements over the past year, including:

  • Russell McVeagh In-house Team of the Year
  • Financial Services In-House Team of the Year
  • In-House Lawyer of the Year
  • Young In-House Lawyer of the Year (35 or Under)

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.
