Danielle Consedine

Associate

I provide public law advice to a wide range of public and private sector clients.

I have extensive public sector experience from my time at Crown Law, the Overseas Investment Office and Inland Revenue. I am able to draw on my first-hand understanding of the unique demands of in-house public sector practice to assist both public and private sector clients. I assist public sector clients to implement policy and make decisions in a lawful and procedurally correct manner. I assist private sector clients engaging with public sector entities to achieve their goals in a lawful and commercially effective manner.

I have advised on a wide range of public law matters, including judicial review, electoral law, privacy issues and official information act issues. I have a strong understanding of natural justice requirements and their theoretical underpinning.  My experience in advising on, preparing for and appearing in public sector litigation allows me to provide targeted advice to assist clients to achieve their goals with minimal risk.

I have experience in advising both regulators and parties being investigated by regulators, most recently in my time at the Overseas Investment Office where, as a member of the Enforcement team, I was involved in investigations, the interviewing of witnesses, reviewing evidence, considering options for enforcement and overseeing enforcement action, including court proceedings.

In addition to my time in the public sector I have six years of dispute resolution experience in mid-sized law firms, during which time I advised on and represented clients involved in disputes across a wide range of topics, including construction and family disputes. In those roles I regularly advised on and represented clients involved in ADR processes, primarily in construction disputes.
