Prianca Moodley

Solicitor

AJ Park Law Limited, Wellington

With training in human rights law and policy, and experience in corporate and commercial law, Prianca Moodley now applies her wide-ranging expertise to litigation and dispute-resolution cases at AJ Park.

Expertise

Prianca joined AJ Park in mid-2017 as a litigation executive working in litigation and dispute resolution, including patent, trade mark, copyright and design disputes. Prianca works with and advises a wide range of clients from individuals and local businesses to multinationals and overseas counsel. She particularly enjoys working with clients who are driven by innovation and investing in creative solutions.

Experience

Prianca began her career in corporate and commercial law, specialising in advising not-for-profit and charity organisations. Before joining AJ Park she worked at a world-first social enterprise law firm, as well as Australia’s largest community legal centre, providing pro bono legal services to marginalised and disadvantaged individuals, and promoting access to justice.

With a Master’s degree in Human Rights Law and Policy, she has experience in a range of litigious disputes before the Federal Court of Australia, Federal Circuit Court of Australia, Australian District and Local Courts, Tribunals and Government Bodies.

Prianca has been admitted as a solicitor to the High Court of Australia and Supreme Court of New South Wales, and is a member of the Law Society of New South Wales.

Working style

Easy-going, calm, reliable and a real team player, Prianca identifies with people who are goal-oriented and passionate about making a difference. She recognises that in business, you are only as strong as your team, and says one of the things that sets AJ Park apart is the cohesiveness between teams and the positive environment that encourages expertise to be shared.

Each case is different, each client is different and our strategies reflect our commitment to really understanding our clients’ needs. I really enjoy engaging with clients to determine their broad business goals and motivations, and developing a strategy to resolve their dispute in a way that’s in line with their vision. For me, trust and insight are essential to a successful working relationship. Our clients need to trust that we will not only act in their best interests but that we have a true appreciation of what those interests are.
