SOUTHERN CROSS BARRISTER

DR RODNEY HARRISON QC

Rodney Harrison QC is best known as one of New Zealand's leading public law and employment law specialists. He also has extensive experience in general commercial litigation, including contract, equity, defamation and insurance law. In the criminal law sphere, he has broad experience as a defence counsel; but in recent times has largely specialised in both prosecuting and defending Serious Fraud prosecutions.

Rodney was appointed Queen's Counsel in 1994, and is now one of New Zealand's most senior Silks. He also holds the equivalent rank in the Kingdom of Tonga, and has appeared in numerous leading cases in that jurisdiction and other Pacific jurisdictions.  He is member of the Bars of New Zealand, the Kingdom of Tonga, the Cook Islands and Samoa.

He was elected a Fellow of the International Academy of Trial Lawyers in 1995, and was a member of the Serious Fraud Office Prosecutors' Panel from 1996 - 2007.

Rodney has extensive trial and appellate experience in leading cases, with appearances before the Court of Appeal, the Privy Council and more recently the Supreme Court of New Zealand. Because of his appellate experience and legal and advocacy skills, Rodney is frequently retained to appear when cases proceed on appeal.
