Nichola Hiatt

Legal Counsel

Nichola is Jarden’s Legal Counsel, advising leaders across the business on day-to-day legal, and regulatory issues, and providing advice on strategic and commercial projects.

Nichola has experience both in-house and in private practice, having spent over a decade working in nationwide firms including Buddle Findlay and Anthony Harper. She joined Jarden in 2016, following three years as Legal and Compliance Manager of another investment banking and wealth management firm. Nichola has expertise in company and corporate law, mergers and acquisitions, securities law, regulatory matters, governance, anti-money laundering and risk management.

Nichola says she feels privileged to work with people who are leaders in the financial services industry and to support them in growing Jarden’s business.

Nichola has an LLB/BA from the University of Otago, and is a Barrister & Solicitor of the High Court of New Zealand. She has served as a member of the Executive Board for the Canterbury Medical Research Foundation since 2013, and is a former Board Member of Dress for Success.

Luckily for Nichola, she loves the outdoors, as she is the mother of two very active and sporty boys. She especially enjoys skiing, running and is an avid reader.
