Wynn Williams has welcomed three senior associates and four associates to its ranks following a promotions cycle.

The elevations were made across the firm’s Ōtautahi Christchurch and Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland offices.

New senior associate Rosie Judd focuses on employment law as part of the Auckland employment team. She has advised on the employment aspects of M&A transactions, as well as matters involving performance management and disciplinary processes, vaccine mandates, redundancies, holiday pay, industrial relations, and personal grievances.

She also concentrates on dispute resolution and has represented clients in mediations and before the Employment Relations Authority and Employment Court. Her clients include charitable organisations, insurers and insured professionals, lawyers and real estate agents.

New senior associate Kate Dickson has provided guidance on district and regional resource management issues as a member of the firm’s environment and planning team in Auckland. She has collaborated with local authorities on planning processes, resource consent applications, and local government matters.

She is an expert in complex consenting matters, where she has represented both local authorities and private developers, as well as in judicial review proceedings. She has appeared before council hearing panels, the Environment Court, and the High Court on local government and environmental issues.

New senior associate Christina Twyman is a specialist in regulatory and insurance litigation within the firm’s dispute resolution team. She has served as lead counsel in the District Court, High Court, Court of Appeal, and specialist tribunals.

She has been involved in professional disciplinary proceedings, coronial inquests, and Royal Commissions of Inquiry. She has also defended clients in complex regulatory prosecutions and assisted regulators on their statutory responsibilities.

Judd, Dickson and Twyman were previously associates at the firm.

In addition, Wynn Williams promoted four solicitors to associates:

  • Harriet France – employment, Christchurch

  • Caroline Pearson - commercial property, Christchurch
  • Rebecca Scholfield - property and business advisory, Christchurch
