Haydon Cunninghame

Senior Associate

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.

After four years in AWS Legal’s Invercargill Office working with the Corporate Team, Haydon has relocated to join the Queenstown Office as an Associate.  Haydon advises on a variety of property and commercial matters, including conveyancing, leasing, subdivision, company restructures, and the sale and purchase of businesses.

Haydon particularly enjoys assisting clients to achieve their desired outcomes, whether that be the purchase of their first home, completion of a residential subdivision, or a complex commercial transaction.  He prides himself on providing clear and concise advice, and makes himself readily available to assist clients in a prompt and timely manner.   

A firm believer in community, Haydon is looking forward to meeting AWS Legal’s existing clients throughout the region, and is motivated to grow and develop his own client base. 

Outside of work, Haydon can be found running, on the mountain, or spending time outdoors with his friends and family.
