Anthony Harper is very pleased to announce a number of new promotions.


“We are proud to recognise six members of our team who have been promoted in recognition of their excellence in their respective legal fields. In particular, Lynne Van, who has been promoted to the partnership.”


“Lynne joined Anthony Harper in 2015 and the last six years have been marked by rapid promotion. Her speciality practice area is insolvency litigation and it is a testament to her expertise that she has been involved in a number of cases that have clarified New Zealand law. She is also ranked prominently as a ‘Rising Star’ in international directories,” Hurley adds.

I am delighted to join the partnership.
