Simpson Grierson Welcomes Hugh Lindo to the Partnership

Simpson Grierson Welcomes Hugh Lindo to the Partnership

Simpson Grierson strengthens its Christchurch office with the appointment of Hugh Lindo to the partnership.

Hugh's appointment is part of the planned growth of Simpson Grierson's Christchurch office. He is one of the city's leading commercial lawyers and brings a wealth of experience, as well as local knowledge, to the firm.

Hugh joins Simpson Grierson after a long and successful career with a large national law firm. On his move Hugh says:

"I am thrilled to have joined Simpson Grierson. 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. Simpson Grierson with its integrated national network and international connections is well placed to deliver excellent and pragmatic advice to its clients throughout this period and beyond."

Hugh is well-known in the Christchurch community. He 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.

Kevin Jaffe, Simpson Grierson's Chairman says "We are delighted to have a lawyer of Hugh's calibre and reputation join the partnership. His appointment is a great step in the ongoing 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.

Simpson Grierson is a full-service law firm providing advice across all areas of commercial law. We have over 350 staff, including 47 partners and more than 220 lawyers in Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch. We are New Zealand's only member of Lex Mundi and are a co-founder of the Pacific Rim Advisory Council.
