Russell McVeagh partners recognised at women in Law Award

Two Russell McVeagh partners recognised at the Australasian Women in Law Awards

8 August 8, 2014

Two Russell McVeagh partners were recognised as the stars of their fields at the 2014 Euromoney Australasian Women in Law Awards, held in Sydney last night.

Corporate Advisory Partner Pip Greenwood won the Capital Markets award, while Finance partner Deemple Budhia won the Rising Star of Finance Award.

Pip Greenwood is an exceptionally highly regarded lawyer specialising in securities, mergers and acquisitions, capital markets and general corporate advisory work. In 2013-14 she advised on a number of high-profile capital markets transactions including on the IPOs of Meridian Energy and Mighty River Power, and the internalisation of management of Kiwi Income Property Trust. She was also recognised with M&A and Private Equity Award at the Women in Law Awards in 2012.

Deemple Budhia became a partner in 2011 and has since been making a name for herself as a specialist in capital markets, securitisation and financial regulation. She advised on a number of high profile transactions in 2013-14 including the launch of ASB's convertible Tier 2 note issue in March this year.
Both Pip and Deemple take part in a number of leadership activities at Russell McVeagh. Pip is a member of the firm's Board of Management and Deemple is an active member of the firm's recruitment committee. They are both recognised for their efforts in mentoring younger lawyers.

The awards are Australasian in scope and both Pip and Deemple were the only New Zealand nominees on the shortlist for their awards. Russell McVeagh would like to congratulate Pip and Deemple on this fantastic achievement.

The firm also picked up the Wellington City award for initiatives and innovation in gender diversity, mentoring and female-friendly work practices.
Partner Sarah Keene (Competition/Antitrust) was also shortlisted for an award.
