Nathaniel's practice spans all aspects of commercial litigation and dispute resolution, with a particular focus on financial services regulation, trusts and equity, consumer law, and disputes with a cross-border dimension. He has significant experience in regulatory investigations, and also regularly provides compliance, law reform and other pre-litigation advice.
Nathaniel rejoined Russell McVeagh in 2017, having spent more than two years in New York practising at one of Wall Street's most prestigious firms, Cravath, Swaine and Moore LLP, as well as completing his Master of Laws at Columbia and undertaking research into white-collar crime with a leading scholar in the field.
At Cravath, Nathaniel focused on complex securities claims, acting for a global financial institution. His career, however, displays the characteristic breadth of an experienced and versatile New Zealand litigator. In that regard, he has acted for both public and private sector clients in a range of statutory, regulatory and contractual disputes, including human rights litigation. Nathaniel also has notable expertise in private international law.
