Yesterday, NZ Lawyer announced their Rising Stars for 2024 and the firm is thrilled to announce that Christchurch Special Counsel Katy Stove, Auckland Senior Associate Jeremy Ansell and Wellington Senior Associate Louisa Joblin have achieved this recognition. The NZ Lawyer list comprises 56 of the most promising young lawyers in New Zealand’s legal industry and we are proud to celebrate three of our own in this list. 

Katy specialises in intellectual property, advising on a range of contentious and non-contentious intellectual property (IP) issues in both Australia and New Zealand, with a particular focus on trademarks, copyright and marketing laws. Katy regularly assists local and international clients on a range of intellectual property matters. Clients have commented that she “always gives great trademark advice and provides practical, client-tailored, astute advice in all circumstances” (WTR 1000 2024).

Jeremy specialises in employment law, primarily assisting medium and large employers with the resolution of personal grievances, dealing with challenging staff behaviour and performance issues, restructuring processes, medical incapacity issues and compliance matters. He also assists clients with investigations and professional discipline (e.g. Law Society and Education Council) matters. Jeremy regularly represents clients at mediation and in Employment Relations Authority and Employment Court matters.

Louisa specialises in data protection and privacy law, advising clients on all their privacy concerns. She also specialises in not-for-profit law, working with charities, incorporated societies, and other philanthropic organisations. As a privacy specialist, Louisa focuses on privacy protection and compliance, advising clients about the requirements of the Privacy Act 2020, privacy documentation and procedure, and how to respond to actual and suspected privacy breaches. As a Not-For-Profit specialist, she works with a wide variety of not-for-profit organisations, advising about modernisation and restructuring, governance, voting procedures, and complex member rights disputes. 

Congratulations Katy, Jeremy and Louisa!
