Josh Taylor, a Senior Associate in the Wynn Williams national Dispute Resolution Team has been acknowledged as a Rising Star in the inaugural NZ Lawyer Rising Stars List 2020. The list has been introduced as a way to recognise up-and-coming stars in the legal profession who have demonstrated leadership and exceptional achievement early in their legal careers.
At only 29, Josh is already undertaking a senior role within the firm, just shy of three years after joining as a solicitor. He has quickly climbed the ranks and gained a high level of client and peer respect within that time. As well as his achievements within the firm, he also contributes to the legal industry outside of his work commitments as a member of the Disciplinary Tribunal for the Canterbury Rugby Football Union, one of the youngest to be appointed to this role. Josh is also a volunteer at Community Law Canterbury.
Wynn Williams’ Dispute Resolution Partner, Jeremy Johnson commented “We are delighted that Josh has received this recognition. Josh is seen as a leader within the firm, showing judgment beyond his years and his advice is already highly trusted by clients. In addition, his willingness to mentor and supervise junior staff is outstanding.”
The firm is extremely proud that Josh has received such a fantastic accolade, congratulations Josh!
