For someone so young, Shane Campbell already boasts an enviable list of accom­plishments in the legal profession. From nabbing first-class honours in law from the University of Canterbury in 2014, as well as the University Prize in Law and awards in tax, intellectual property, and family law throughout his degree, Campbell is now a rising star at Wynn Williams, where he leads the civil litigation practice in the South Island, supervising a large and busy team. His recent promotion to partner of the firm’s national dispute resolution team is a reflection of his exceptional performance at Wynn Williams, from the breadth and complexity of matters he undertakes to his leadership of his team and his contributions to the wider legal profession.

Notable cases Campbell has handled over the past 12 months include McNeish v McAr­thur, in which he defended a claim that mirror wills were mutual wills that created a constructive trust over the assets of the deceased. He served as sole counsel in Gloria Jean’s Coffees International v Daboko, successfully arguing that a benefit in practice is all that is required for consideration in a contractual variation case.

Prior to Wynn Williams, Campbell was a law tutor and research assistant at the Univer­sity of Canterbury and a judge’s clerk at the High Court of New Zealand. He is also a member of the New Zealand Law Society Civil Litigation and Tribunals Committee.
