In-House Leaders 2020

customer legal business partner

As customer legal business partner at Spark, Grant Pritchard is responsible for providing legal support for customer terms, enterprise sales agreements, and go-to-market and product launch activities.

Pritchard has been engaged in a number of strategic matters for Spark over the past year, including the Spark Foundation's divestment of crowd-funding platform, Givealittle. The self-proclaimed “gadget guy” has even personally implemented an online contracting tool that is being used Spark-wide, with zero upfront costs and minimal ongoing fees to operate. Pritchard’s ongoing efforts, as well as that of the rest of the legal team, had them recognised as In-House Team of the Year at last year’s NZ Law Awards.

In addition to his’s formal legal role, Pritchard has taken on the voluntary yet monumental role of spearheading Spark’s vision and strategy for workplace mental health. He led the complete overhaul of Spark's mental health program, which is aimed at eliminating stigma and discrimination, raising awareness, better supporting staff with mental health conditions and creating an open and supportive workplace culture. 

Pritchard is also president of the In-house Association of New Zealand (ILANZ), a role which enables him to meet the professional needs of fellow in-house lawyers.
