Auckland, New Zealand, EY Law has welcomed Cameron Taylor who joins as a Partner, and Brendan Prebble who joins as an Associate Partner, to its growing team of legal professionals amidst ever increasing client demand.
A former Olympian and most recently a Partner at Minter Ellison, Cameron steps into the role to lead EY Law’s Corporate law expansion in New Zealand. Prior to Minters, Cameron’s wealth of experience has seen him working in corporates and large law firms overseas in London and the United States. He has managed an impressive line-up of projects from working with local and international clients in strategic corporate transactions, M&A, takeovers, joint ventures, restructures, capital raises, IPOs and corporate governance.
Cameron has extensive experience advising private and listed companies, financial institutions and PE firms in New Zealand and Australia as well as in New York and London. He is also Chair of the Board of Athletics in NZ as well as previously being on the Board of the American Chamber of Commerce.
“Leading the Corporate Law team is a huge opportunity and one I am delighted to be a part of. I’m very much looking forward to working alongside Tori and the team at EY to deliver market leading work for our clients,” says Cameron.
Brendon Prebble joins Taylor as an Associate Partner in the New Zealand Corporate Law team, also from Minter Ellison. Brendon will also be focussed on all aspects of M&A with a special emphasis on venture capital and infrastructure.
“It’s exciting to join a growing team and I can’t wait to see what opportunities this new role brings. Having worked with Cameron in the past, I know we’re in safe hands and that collectively we’ll be able to grow the corporate law offering at EY,” says Brendon.
Cameron and Brendon’s skills directly complement EY’s Strategy and Transaction teams, to deliver top tier integrated legal and non-legal services to clients.
New Zealand Law Leader, Tori Sullivan, believes the increasing demand in services means it’s an exciting time to be working in Corporate Law, and she too is thrilled Cameron and Brendon have been appointed to help with the firm’s growth.
“I am delighted to work alongside Cameron and Brendon to grow EY Law’s Corporate Law footprint in New Zealand. There is so much opportunity with demand being stronger than ever, and it is fantastic to have lawyers of this calibre join our strong and growing existing legal teams,” says Tori.
