Bankside congratulates Laura O'Gorman KC on her appointment as a Judge of the High Court.

Justice O’Gorman will take up her appointment on Monday 23 October 2023, sitting in Auckland.

Justice O’Gorman became a barrister sole with Bankside Chambers in 2019. Her practice has included a broad range of commercial litigation, with specialist expertise in insolvency, competition law, judicial review and statutory appeals, conflict of laws, company law and contractual disputes. She was appointed Queen’s Counsel in 2021.

Laura shares: "I have loved my time as a barrister sole at Bankside Chambers. I have enjoyed four years of wonderful collegiality, flexibility and independence. It is therefore with some trepidation that I take this next step. I know there will be a steep learning curve, but I am looking forward to the new challenges ahead."

Laura will be sworn in on Thursday 26 October 2023. She will be missed by all of us at Bankside and we wish her all the best in this exciting new challenge ahead.
