Former MinterEllisonRuddWatts partner Silvana Schenone may no longer be at the legal coal face, but her role with leading New Zealand-owned investment banking group and wealth managers Jardens sees her play a key role in the company’s development in both the New Zealand and Australian markets and to enter the 2023 Power List of New Zealand’s most powerful lawyers.
Although she resigned her role at MinterEllisonRuddWatts last year, Silvana Schenone remains a major power player on the business scene.
The former New Zealand Deal Maker of the Year in 2021 at the Australasian Law Awards joined Jardens to co-head their investment banking with Sam Ricketts, (both pictured, below) boosting the company’s plans to become one of Australasia’s leading investment and advisory banks.
She is a board member of the New Zealand Takeover Panel, a recently retired board member of SKY City and has frequently liaised with regulatory authorities including the Financial Markets Authority, the New Zealand Stock Exchange, and the Overseas Investment Office.
Her international background has seen her practice law in New York, Chile, and New Zealand.
