The annual New Zealand Law Awards, now in its 17th year, has been recognised as the leading independent awards event in the legal profession. Across an array of categories, the awards showcase the leading law firms, in-house teams, individuals and dealmakers that raised the bar over the past year.


Unfortunately, due to the current situation with COVID, we have made the decision to transfer the event to a virtual format. We appreciate the continued cooperation and understanding of all registrants and partners throughout another challenging year. If you have purchased a ticket for the planned physical event, you will be able to transfer your purchase to one of our awards packages. The awards packages available will help you share and celebrate your success, ranging from a trophy and digital medal to a comprehensive multimedia editorial campaign. Toby Brown will be in touch with you in the coming weeks to discuss your options. If you would like to give him a call, he would love to hear from you. His details are toby.brown@keymedia.com or 02 8437 4795.


The New Zealand Law Awards will took place virtually on Thursday, 18 November 2021. The event featured the exclusive stream of the awards presentation and online networking opportunities such as a live chat and peer-matching function of the virtual platform.


The New Zealand Law Awards is presented by NZ Lawyer, the resource of choice for the country's most forward-thinking legal professionals.


NZLA Host Ryan Bridge

Ryan Bridge


Host of Discovery’s breakfast offering, The AM Show, seasoned journalist Ryan Bridge will charm you or disarm you – often both at the same time! Kiwi news personality Ryan uses his satirical style to keep his audience informed and entertained, bringing a depth of news knowledge and warmth to weekday mornings, along with the full force of the Newshub newsroom.


In his 10 + years in the media, Ryan has worked for Radio New Zealand as a political reporter in the press gallery at Parliament, TV3’s Beijing correspondent and business newsreader on Morning Report. He reported and presented for TV3’s 7 pm current affairs show, Story, as well as Newshub Live at 6pm, and was the host of RadioLIVE’s political and lifestyle show, Your Sunday.


He has covered major news events across the Asia-Pacific region; reported on climate change from Antarctica, human rights from Myanmar, trade from Russia’s Far East and spent two months on the ground in the aftermath of the 2011 Canterbury earthquakes.


As host of Magic Talk Drive for several years, Ryan tackled the big news stories of the day; talking to the newsmakers and the lawbreakers, which prepared him well as regular stand-in for The AM Show host Duncan Garner, eventually becoming the permanent anchor in 2021.
