Paul Borich has been made a QC

 

Paul-Borich-profile.jpgOn the appointment of Paul Borich as a new QC on 2 June 2017, Mr Finlayson, the Attorney-General said:

“The appointment to the rank of QC recognises individuals who have excelled at the highest levels of law”.

Paul Borich QC graduated with an LLB (University Auckland 1988).  He joined Rice Craig in 1989 and became partner in 1996.  In 2014 Paul joined the independent bar.  He specialises in criminal law, including criminal appeals to the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court. 

At Rice Craig Paul’s skills as a Court advocate were soon apparent.  His passion for criminal law saw him grow and develop his practice.  He has become one of South Auckland’s most respected counsel, liked by judiciary, Police and clients alike. 

Paul is both charismatic and self-effacing.  Recently interviewed for “Law News” he had been asked what prompted him to go into law.  Paul Borich QC stated:

“Whilst still at primary school, I had to do a project on careers.  At that stage, I had no idea about a career.  I got into trouble with the teacher on a homework matter, who told me that I was ‘a smart Alec (another “a” word may have been used) …. had a smart answer for everything and was as bad as a bloody lawyer!”.  Although not intended to be as such, I took that as career advice.  I did my project on being a lawyer and never looked back.”  

When asked what achievements he was most proud of in terms of his career, Paul Borich QC stated:

“As far as my legal career goes, I look back with pride at my time at Rice Craig in Papakura.  I was there 25 years as a law clerk, solicitor, associate and partner.  I was supported and encouraged to practice criminal the whole time I was there ‘almost unheard of in a firm’.  It was difficult to leave a place with such great partners and staff.” 

Rice Craig remains an instructing solicitor for Paul and continues to enjoy our close ties to him.  We wish to congratulate Paul on his elevation to the inner bar, which is due recognition of his special skills and excellence in law.
