Who we are
Experienced Legal Counsel
Founded in 2020, Rubicon Chambers continues the collaboration of a number of barristers who have worked in close association since 2012. Dr Roderick Mulgan, Michael Bott, and Stephen Iorns, are the founding members. They were joined by Professor Catherine Iorns in 2021.
Chambers members are all supported by competent associates, juniors, interns, and research assistants.
Since teaming up, all of our Barristers have consolidated their individual reputations for winning the point, whatever it may be. Whether it's a criminal pre-trial admissibility argument, or an application to transfer civil proceedings to a different Court. Whether it's a full-blown jury trial, an appeal, civil proceedings in Tribunals (like the Human Rights Tribunal, and Employment Tribunal), specialist Courts (like the Environment Court and Employment Court) or the District, High and Appellate Courts, we will give it our all. From the outset, we do our utmost to give you a full and frank assessment of your prospects of success, and with the benefit of our written advice, you make the calls and direct us on how to proceed.
We cannot control the facts of the case that you bring to us. But we can minimise any harm, and ensure the best possible outcome is achieved for you. While we like to win, we know that it's your life or business in our hands, and we take that responsibility very seriously indeed.
From our professional and discreet offices in the heart of the Wellington CBD, the barristers at Rubicon Chambers are here to expertly guide you through the important matters that call for our very particular skill-set. From the outset, we work with you to develop the best strategy for guiding your case towards the best possible outcome. Rest assured you can feel comfortable, safe, and confident knowing that your case is in the best hands.
Get in touch with us today — we look forward to hearing from you.
As barristers, most of our work comes via referrals from solicitors. With that said we are often contacted directly by members of the public. When this happens we need formal instructions from a solicitor, much like in the medical profession where you do not approach the surgeon without a referral from your GP. If you do not have a solicitor already, we are happy to make arrangements for this at our end. If you have any questions about this, please ask.
