Nick Hodson, LLB, MCE

Nick Hodson is a co-founder of Powle & Hodson Lawyers. Nick has been a lawyer since 1992. He started his career as a solicitor with two years working in Hastings and Lower Hutt law firms. He then spent five years in Sydney as an in-house lawyer for Telstra before moving to London for two years during the "dot com" boom as an Associate of Clifford Chance.

Nick returned to New Zealand with his young family in 2001 and spent 7 years as a corporate partner of Minter Ellison Rudd Watts in Wellington and Auckland. He started Nick Hodson Lawyers in 2010. In April 2017, Nick and Donna Powle established Powle & Hodson Lawyers.

Nick studied law at the University of Canterbury, and has been admitted to practice law in New Zealand and New South Wales. In 2014 he went back to school and completed a Masters of Commercialisation and Entrepreneurship at the University of Auckland in 2015. He is an investor in several early stage companies. This helps him answer the question “what would you do if you were me?” from the perspective of someone who has put his own money on the line.

Nick is married to Rachel and has two sons, Reilly and Cormac. During his spare time he plays and coaches hockey, plays cricket, and loves to cook and travel.
