Simpson Grierson’s Christchurch office has appointed former Duncan Cotterill partner, Hugh Lindo, to the partnership.
The firm says Lindo’s appointment is part of the planned growth of Simpson Grierson’s Christchurch presence.
“He is one of the city’s leading commercial lawyers and brings a wealth of experience, as well as local knowledge, to the firm,” said a spokesperson.
Lindo joins Simpson Grierson after a career with Duncan Cotterill and says he’s “thrilled” with his new partnership position.
“I look forward to supporting the work of the firm in Christchurch and growing the office in response to the needs of our clients here. Christchurch and Canterbury will experience the most significant transformation of any region in the country over the next 10 or more years.”
Lindo holds a number of Board and governance appointments
with the Canterbury Employers Chamber of Commerce (vice-President), The Court Theatre Foundation (chair), Champion Canterbury Limited and College House.
"We are delighted to have a lawyer of Hugh's calibre and reputation join the partnership,” said Simspon Grierson chairman, Kevin Jaffe.
“His appointment is a great step in the on-going development of our Christchurch office."
Simpson Grierson has long worked in the Christchurch market. In June 2013 the firm moved to high quality new premises in the HSBC Tower on Worcester Boulevard.
