Greg King a huge loss to New Zealand

MEDIA STATEMENT

Greg King a huge loss to New Zealand
 
Labour Leader David Shearer extends his sincerest sympathies to the family of lawyer Greg King, who died yesterday.

"Greg had one of this country's finest legal brains. There wouldn't be many New Zealanders who hadn't heard of him.

"While most would know him for his high profile high court work, Greg also represented employment, family law and civil law clients.

"He has also made a huge contribution to raising the profile of the legal profession.
 
"Greg King's death at such a young age is a tragedy. It will leave a huge gap, and my deepest sympathies go to his wife Catherine, children Pippa and Millie, their family and friends," David Shearer said.
