Meet Our People

We are only as successful as our people, and our lawyers bring a diverse range of perspectives to collaboratively produce leading strategic and commercial advice.

From summer clerks to senior solicitors, our support team to partners, a common theme that runs through the firm is collaboration, astuteness, and integrity, but each individual brings something unique.

Here are just a few of the talented winter, summer and law clerks we have at Chapman Tripp:


“I really wanted the opportunity to see what it was like working in a big law firm so that’s why I applied to be a winter clerk. As an arts/law student, I had absolutely no idea what the corporate world was like prior to my time at CT. I was pleasantly surprised – everyone was inclusive and friendly.”
ELLA BROWNLIE, WINTER CLERK, AUCKLAND, VICTORIA UNIVERSITY 

 

 

“Following my winter clerkship I enjoyed getting to know people outside of work at the firm’s regular social events. I took part in active October, the inter-firm sports competition, and went to quiz nights and other social events. By the time I summer clerked I had well and truly established a good network of people in the Christchurch office.”

WILL CHAMBERS, SUMMER CLERK, CHRISTCHURCH, UNIVERSITY OF CANTERBURY

 

 

“I didn’t think Corporate was for me - but my experience at Chapman Tripp, the focus on people and whanaungatanga, proved me wrong. I felt a strong sense of connection and support, and it gave me a taste of what it was like to work in a commercial law firm.”

MORGAN DALTON-MILL, WINTER CLERK, AUCKLAND, THE UNIVERSITY OF AUCKLAND

 

 

“My first rotation as a summer clerk was in the corporate and Te Waka Ture teams. I felt inspired by the work the firm was doing in the iwi governance space, which is why I initially applied. Te reo Māori is my passion – and the language is proudly recognized by the firm and quite widely spoken.”
ERU KAPA-KINGI, SUMMER CLERK, AUCKLAND, VICTORIA UNIVERSITY

 

 

“A summer clerkship at Chapman Tripp is a really great taster of what you’re going to experience when you come into a commercial law firm as a graduate.”

ELLA SNEDDON, LAW CLERK, AUCKLAND, UNIVERSITY OF OTAGO
