Canterbury law firm and Enterprise North Canterbury Business Service Partner Saunders Robinson Brown (SRB) has expanded its Commercial practice with the appointment of three new Partners: Jonathan Gillard, Jeff Kenny and Josh Orton; along with Associate Katrina Wood, effective 1 August 2019.

The addition of this nationally recognised retail property team bolsters SRB’s commercial property market capabilities, a specialised area requiring strong industry knowledge.

SRB Managing Partner, Anna Fox, welcomes the new appointments saying, “This is a hugely positive step for us and builds on our already dominant commercial capability. They bring a new skill set in the area of Commercial Property & Projects and this will take our firm into exciting new commercial areas such as retail leasing and development. We are experiencing a period of real growth and can offer a Commercial team that is second to none in Christchurch”.

Kenny says, “We are very pleased to be at SRB. The firm is client focused, has a great culture, excellent legal talent, and is well led and organised. It is a first class platform for doing what we do and we’re really looking forward to working with others at SRB with a commercial property focus”.

The appointments come at an exciting time for SRB who have returned to river-side premises in the Christchurch CBD and have been steadily expanding their team and expertise in the past two years.
