Heaney & Partners has welcomed construction specialist John Morrison back to the fold after six years.

Morrison first joined the firm’s predecessor in 2009 after receiving his degree from Victoria University; that year, he was also admitted to the bar. In 2014, he departed to bolster his experience, mainly through working with a major national firm’s construction team.

He has worked on many civil litigation claims, such as construction contract disputes, liability and defective building claims. His clients include developers, head contractors, subcontractors, consultants and local authorities.

Currently, Morrison is also part of the New Zealand Society of Construction Law.

He returned to Heaney & Partners in September as a senior associate – a return praised by the firm.

Meanwhile, Heaney & Partners also boosted its roster with the addition of law clerk Fintan Minehan.

Minehan obtained his Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Applied Sciences degrees from the University of Otago last year. Having just finished his studies, Minehan is expected to be admitted to the bar later in the year.

He joined Heaney & Partners’ civil litigation team in August.

The firm said that both lawyers were “looking forward to working with the firm’s clients and within our close, collaborative team.”
