Supervision and mentoring ordered for barrister

11 December 2019

The New Zealand Lawyers and Conveyancers Disciplinary Tribunal has ordered that Christchurch barrister Phillip Nigel Allan undergoes a period of six months’ supervision and mentoring.

The supervision and mentoring is to be provided by Andrew McKenzie, a Christchurch barrister. Mr Allan is also required to engage another lawyer to complete a legal aid assignment. Problems with the assignment resulted in the Tribunal finding Mr Allan was guilty of unsatisfactory conduct.

The Tribunal decided that a censure was not an appropriate penalty. It has also ordered that he pay total costs of $20,992.20.
