Mai Chen, founding partner at Chen Palmer, Public Law Specialists, today announced the promotion of Nick Russell to the position of Principal. “Since joining the firm three years ago from a large nationwide law firm, Nick has developed a strong practice in public law litigation, ranging over a wide variety of industries and areas of the law”, Ms Chen said.

“He has been invaluable in enabling clients to address important business risks arising out of government regulation and law reform. He also specializes in competition and regulation, particularly in the energy sector, media and defamation, and health law.

While Chen Palmer has built a reputation around using the whole spectrum of public law tools to generate policy and legislative outcomes, litigation has always been an important component in the strategies we develop for clients.”

“As a Principal in the firm’s Wellington office, Nick will play a more prominent role in servicing the public law market throughout New Zealand and Australia.” His appointment strengthens Chen Palmer’s position as NZ’s top Public Law firm.
