In her new role Sue will provide expert advice on corporate, regulatory and government issues. She will also work closely with colleagues globally as the firm continues its close relationship with the world's largest law firm, DLA Piper.

“In New Zealand, I’ll focus on helping clients find solutions to challenges they face in the financial markets, regulatory and government sectors, deepen the alignment of the firm with DLA Piper, promote the strategic growth of the Wellington office and assist in developing depth and expertise among the team,” she says.

FMA’s Chief Executive Rob Everett, said “Sue has been a massive contributor to FMA and to New Zealand’s financial services regime during her time here and whilst we are very sorry to see her go, we look forward to her continued leadership and influence in the development of our markets at DLA Phillips Fox.”
