Jackson Russell Deepens Business Law Expertise with Appointment of New Partner David Alizade

Written by Jackson Russell on August 8th, 2017.    


Jackson Russell has appointed David Alizade as a partner in its Business Law team. David brings extensive New Zealand and international experience to the team across various sectors such as technology, media, telecommunications, retail, manufacturing and life sciences.

David’s practice encompasses all aspects of corporate and commercial law, including joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions and commercial contracts. His experience includes working with innovative and disruptive businesses on intellectual property strategy and commercialisation matters.

Before returning to New Zealand, David was a partner in the Business Law team of a UK law firm. David says: “It is great to be back in New Zealand, and to be able to share with clients the international experience I have gained working both in law firms and in businesses.”

Originally from the UK, David has a master’s degree in law (with honours) from Cambridge University. He has worked for much of his career in New Zealand, and is a New Zealand lawyer and a Fellow of Governance New Zealand. 

Business Law team partner Darryl King says: “We are delighted to welcome David to Jackson Russell. As well as his specialist knowledge, David has impressed us with his ability to build rapport with clients and provide clear business-focused advice. David’s practice complements and enhances our range of Business Law services to clients.”   

"David’s appointment builds on our other recent partnership and senior lawyer appointments. In 2016 Israel Vaealiki was appointed to strengthen our trusts and succession planning team in preparation for senior partner Richard Wilson becoming a consultant. We are pleased to continue to attract outstanding people who add value to our clients.”
