DLA Piper appoints a new partner
DLA Piper New Zealand welcomes Daniel Street as a new Auckland-based partner in its Litigation and Regulatory Practice Group.
Daniel has most recently worked at Chapman Tripp, and before that Slaughter & May in London.
Daniel has a strong client focus and values the sheer variety of work that litigation and regulatory practise brings. In the last 18 months he has advised banks, financial service providers, listed issuers, and large corporates on climate-related disclosures and ESG issues. Daniel also has extensive experience with regulatory investigations by the FMA, SFO, NZCC and Inland Revenue.
"Daniel's understanding of the sustainability and ESG regulatory landscape in New Zealand makes him an excellent addition to our global practice. His experience will supplement our global sustainability and ESG client offering, including our award-winning ESG due diligence service and our business advisory capabilities" says Jean-Pierre Douglas-Henry, managing director of sustainability and resilience.
Laura Scampion, managing partner of DLA Piper in New Zealand, says, “We are delighted to welcome Daniel to the partnership. His extensive ESG experience, commitment to client service and technical ability adds considerable depth and bench strength to both our litigation and regulatory law practice and the firm as a whole. Daniel's appointment reflects client and market demands as ESG becomes increasingly important to businesses."
