Associate Judge Kenneth Johnston QC - Special Guest Speaker

We are grateful to and pleased to welcome Associate Judge Kenneth Johnston QC as our special guest speaker.

Justice Johnston QC has had a long and distinguished career at the bar, contributing significantly as counsel in a extraordinarily wide range of areas, including a number of significant construction law cases. Prior to moving to the independent bar he had been the National Managing Partner of Rudd Watts & Stone, now Minter Ellison Rudd Watts. He was appointed Queen's Counsel in July 2016. He was chair of the New Zealand Teachers' Disciplinary Tribunal from 2005 to 2016 and a Deputy Chair of the Health Practitioners Disciplinary tribunal from mid-2014.

His Honour’s warmth and generosity of spirit are legendary – he is well known for his enthusiasm for rugby and automobiles.

A move to the judiciary allows His Honour to speak with some authority to us on managing construction cases from the Court’s perspective.
