Christchurch firm Rhodes & Co has welcomed Anna Whalan back to the firm as an associate.

“We are delighted to have a lawyer of Anna's calibre return to the firm. She will add significant value for our clients in both litigious and commercial matters, and is a great addition to our already talented team,” senior partner Stephen Rennie told NZ Lawyer.

Whalan first joined the firm in 2010. Following her graduation from Canterbury University as the top law student of the batch, she was admitted to the practice in 2014.

She spent three years at Rhodes & Co as a solicitor, and then headed to the University of Cambridge to obtain her master of law degree on scholarship. She received a First and Trinity College’s award for excellence in the law.

Subsequently, she went on to specialise in dispute resolution at Herbert Smith Freehills Melbourne office. She has advised on contentious and non-contentious matters.

Whalan has also guided clients on issues involving capital raisings and corporate structuring, land transactions, agri-business, relationship property, and trusts and estates. She has served as counsel before the District Court, High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court.

She re-joined Rhodes & Co in late 2020.
