Haydon Cunninghame


Haydon was born and raised in Invercargill before moving to Dunedin to complete his University studies.  He graduated from Otago University in 2014 with a double degree in Law and Commerce, and spent his final semester studying abroad at the University of California.

Now a part of AWS Legal’s Corporate Team, Haydon works alongside Norman Elder and Cameron Murphy on a variety of matters including residential and commercial property transactions, leasing, subdivision, the sale and purchase of businesses, and company restructures.  Haydon also works from the AWS Legal Queenstown office several days each week and is available to meet with clients throughout the region as and when required.

Haydon particularly enjoys working with clients to achieve their desired outcomes, whether that be the purchase of their first home, or a complex commercial transaction.  He prides himself on providing clear and concise advice, and is always willing to assist his clients in their endeavours.  

Outside of work, Haydon can be found running, surfing, and spending time outdoors with his friends and family.
