Regulatory risks expert joins Bell Gully

A regulatory risks expert has recently joined one of New Zealand’s leading firms.

Alix Boberg has joined Bell Gully as senior associate, as reported by the New Zealand Law Society.

According to the firm, Boberg has “extensive experience” in the management of regulatory risks and the defence of regulatory investigations and proceedings across a range of sectors. She has worked in New Zealand and internationally both as a prosecutor and defence counsel. Her global experience includes work at Sullivan & Cromwell LLP in New York and Simmons & Simmons LLP in London.

Additionally, she has she advised clients under investigation by the US Department of Justice, UK Serious Fraud Office, and the Financial Conduct Authority.

Prior to her work abroad, Boberg was a criminal prosecutor in Auckland, acting as Crown counsel in jury trials, and completed a secondment at the Commerce Commission. She began her career as judge's clerk for then-Chief Justice, Dame Sian Elias.

“Her advice to clients is both proactive, including internal investigations and compliance reform, and reactive, when responding to regulatory enquiries or litigation,” Bell Gully said on their website.
