Rocket Lab senior legal counsel crosses the Tasman to Australian tech specialist firm

Rocket Lab senior legal counsel Courtney Dick is crossing the Tasman to Australian tech specialist firm Biztech Lawyers as its new senior lawyer.

She is set to relocate to Biztech’s Sydney office, bringing to the table considerable experience with digital and broadcast media, commercial law and IP.

“The last few years at Rocket Lab, watching it grow from a relatively new company to being listed on the NASDAQ and working with so many incredible people has been amazing, however it is time for my next challenge!” Dick wrote in a LinkedIn post.

In August, Dick was counted among the excellence awardees of the James & Wells Young In-House Lawyer of the Year category at this year’s New Zealand Law Awards. Prior to her tenure at Rocket Lab, she logged a stint as legal counsel at MediaWorks NZ from 2017 to 2019.

Dick explained that the decision to move to Biztech was “an easy choice.”

“They are a new innovative firm of technology lawyers who assist tech businesses as outside counsel with all their commercial legal needs. I am very excited to join the team and use everything I have learnt to help so many more businesses with their legal needs,” she wrote in her post.

Biztech founder and APAC managing director Anthony Bekker welcomed Dick to the firm, highlighting her skillset and accolades.

“Courtney's deep experience in scaling actual rocketship companies to the NASDAQ will no doubt be well received,” Bekker wrote in a LinkedIn post.

Dick will commence with Biztech in Sydney once NSW’s border restrictions have been lifted.
