David Robinson was elected the new President of the New Zealand Law Society’s Otago branch in May 2014, succeeding Gerard DeCourcy.

A partner of Gallaway Cook Allan Lawyers, Mr Robinson was born in Otago and has lived in the province all his life.

After graduating from Otago University with an LLB, he worked at Wilkinson Adams for about seven years, primarily as a litigator. He started with a main focus on civil litigation but over time became more and more focused on criminal litigation, including work in Crown prosecution.

He has been a partner of Gallaway Cook Allan since 2006, working exclusively in litigation. He has been involved in a range of litigation, from maritime claims to health and safety, from aviation to general civil litigation and also in criminal matters, principally regulatory.

Mr Robinson is married to Lynette, who is a nurse. They have two sons, aged 10 and 12 years. Much of his time out of work revolves around family.

He also teaches part-time at Otago University, in part of the criminal procedure programme for second-year law students.
