Partnership splits

The partnership of a New Zealand firm is splitting.

Auckland-based insurance litigation firm Jones Fee is separating into two different firms as of September 1.
 
Greg Jones said to NZLawyer that he will be settling his plans over the next few weeks.
 
Jones has extensive experience in general and commercial litigation and co-authored the New Zealand commentary on the Insurance volume of Halsbury's Laws of England.

Philippa Fee, Craig Langstone, Pauline Barratt and Cecily Brick will be known as Fee Langstone.

Fee has been practicing as a commercial litigation specialist since 1980 and became a partner of the predecessor firm to Jones Fee in 1986.

More details will be available closer to the launch dates for each firm.
