Russell McVeagh and Fonterra scoop up ALB Law Awards

Russell McVeagh and Fonterra scoop up ALB Law Awards


Fonterra's Trading Among Farmers transaction, completed in November 2012, was one of the big winners at this year's ALB Australasian Law Awards. The transaction won New Zealand Deal of the Year and the IPO of the Fonterra Shareholders' Fund won the Equity Deal of the Year Award, an Australasian-wide category. Russell McVeagh acted as the principal legal advisors to Fonterra from the beginning of the transaction in 2010 to its completion.

The firm would like to congratulate the Fonterra legal team, which also won the New Zealand In-house Team of the Year Award in recognition of their outstanding hard work and achievement.

Russell McVeagh Partner Graeme Quigley also picked up the New Zealand Dealmaker of the Year Award in recognition of his work as team leader on Trading Among Farmers, as well as a host of other transactions in 2012. Graeme's 2013 win makes this the fifth time in six years that a Russell McVeagh partner has won New Zealand Dealmaker of the Year, with the firm taking out the award in 2012, 2010, 2009 and 2008.

The ALB Law Awards are the premier awards event for the Australian and New Zealand legal industries. They are a well-established and much anticipated event that recognise and celebrate the achievements and successes of the legal profession over the previous 12 months. This year's award winners were announced at the Awards Dinner at the Sydney Town Hall on Thursday 30 May 2013.
