LawFuel.co.nz – The list has Sir Geoffrey Palmer at the top, with four other pretenders to the throne
Sir Geoffrey Palmer, Law Commission President, has been labeled the most powerful lawyer in New Zealand in the ‘Listener’ magazine’s “Power List”.
The Listener says Palmer is sometimes referred to as Cardinal Richelieu for his behind-the-scenes power. Midway through a five year term as present of the Law Commission the former Labour Prime Minister co-founded the public law firm Chen & Palmer in 1994 before joining the Commission in 2005. The Listener last year rates Palmer as Number 10 on its list of the most powerful lawyers but has elevated him as a result of the influence he has on the legal scene as de facto “Minister of Law Reform.”
