Alumni Update

​March 2021​

​​​A note from Andrew

I’m pleased to bring you my first Alumni Update as the new Chair of Bell Gully. It’s a pleasure to take over the helm from Anna Buchly who did such a fantastic job.

While the world watched a certain celebrity interview this month, you’d be forgiven if you missed my own interview in the NBR. No bombshells there though as it is business as usual at Bell Gully with no major changes to the firm’s strategy - albeit with dialled back expectations this year even after our strong 2020 performance.

The year is off to a good start with the welcome return of several BG alumni to swell our senior associate ranks. We catch up with Alex Bond and Zac Kedgley-Foot in this issue, and alumnus Hannah Andrews tells us about her new enterprise – TaxGift.

This month saw our corporate teams sign two separate significant acquisitions of New Zealand software companies, for two listed North American technology groups – evidence not only of the quality of tech assets in this country, but also of Bell Gully’s leading position as legal adviser to international clients on their inbound investments into New Zealand.

It's on the strength of deals such as these for our clients that we’re proud to announce that we’ve been named the IFLR Asia Pacific 2021 Law Firm of the Year.

Finally, as exclusive ​legal supplier to Emirates Team New Zealand we couldn't be more proud of the America's Cup win!
