Franks Ogilvie announces the appointment of Brigitte Morten as a Principal and Director of the company Commercial & Public Law Ltd, and the promotion of Aimee Dartnall to Senior Solicitor.
Brigitte joining Stephen Franks and Rob Ogilvie in ownership consolidates the development she has brought to the firm since joining in 2019. Aimee’s promotion reflects the considerable experience she has acquired in managing and building the firm’s litigation practice.
The firm will further expand in the areas managed by Brigitte and Aimee.
Before joining Franks Ogilvie, Brigitte spent over a decade working in politics here and in Australia. Brigitte knows how government actually works, in distinction to how outsiders think it might work or should work. She is regularly asked for media comment on political issues.
Stephen Franks, founding Franks Ogilvie principal says, “I’ve seen Brigitte’s current experience and connections give Franks Ogilvie clients unique insights. Our advice can get results more constructive, speedy and permanent than traditional legal advice. Without understanding the realities of public advocacy and strategic communication, lawyer involvement can sometimes lead clients into little more than risk, expense and delay.
She has become a principal on an accelerated timeframe following recognition from the Law Society that her experience in ministerial and political management positions in Australia and New Zealand is valued legal experience.
Aimee Dartnall’s promotion follows her responsibility for the firm’s work in high profile cases such as the Council of Licensed Firearm Owners v Minister for Police, Moncrief-Spittle v Regional Facilities Auckland, Re Edwards, and other cases in the High Court, and Court of Appeal.
“We’re delighted by Brigitte and Aimee’s contribution to the growth of our practice,” says Franks Ogilvie Principal, Rob Ogilvie.
