Alumni Update

​​​July 2020

A note from Anna

We are thankful that office life at Bell Gully is returning to normal. We have officially welcomed the 2020 law clerks and marked Staff Appreciation Day with a morning tea. It was great to see everyone from the wider office all back together again in the same room, enjoying each other’s company over a couple of sausage rolls and sandwiches.

The firm has another reason to celebrate. The year marks a significant milestone for Bell Gully – its 180th year anniversary. When a firm has been through The Great Depression, two world wars, more recently the GFC and now COVID (not even the firm’s first pandemic) it really puts into perspective the value of our approach of taking a long term view of our current situation.

We know our alumni around the world will all be in a variety of different circumstances. We are thinking of you and sending our support.

We hope that wherever you are you enjoy connecting with each other through this latest update. Sam Hiebendaal and his family made it back to New Zealand in March just prior to the lockdown and tells us why he’s pleased to be home. Last year alumnus Wendy Chen was a finalist in the Women in Governance Awards as an emerging leader. We learn more about her “portfolio” lifestyle.

Kind regards,

Anna Buchly
