The members congratulate former member Helen Winkelmann on her appointment as the new Chief Justice of New Zealand.
Shortland Chambers is pleased to announce that Bronwyn Carruthers has joined as a member. Prior to moving to the independent bar, Bronwyn was an Environmental, Planning and Natural Resources partner for 7 years at the highly respected Auckland firm Russell McVeagh.
Bronwyn practices in environmental, resource management and local government law. Bronwyn advises a wide range of clients including infrastructure providers, corporates, individuals and not for profit organisations. She not only assists with obtaining consents for projects, but also with plan making, judicial review, declarations, enforcement action and law reform.
We wish Bronwyn well in her career at the bar.
Shortland Chambers believes in assisting young lawyers in their careers and to that end, it takes on junior barristers and sponsors their rental in chambers for a term. The chambers provide work to these juniors in the form of research and court appearances.
We invite expressions of interest for Junior Barrister positions in 2018. Please send your application (including cover letter, CV and academic transcript) to Pamela Caldwell, Chambers Manager no later than 31 March 2017.
