Rory McDougall

Trusts Executive
Wills, Trusts & Probate

My Professional Background

I joined Attwaters Jameson Hill in May 2024 as a Trust Executive in the Wills, Trusts and Probate department. I trained and qualified as a private wealth solicitor in New Zealand and completed my law degree at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. Before joining Attwaters, I was employed at a boutique private wealth law firm in Wellington. My favourite part of my role is meeting with clients and guiding them through complex legal processes in a simple and structured manner.


Achievements / Accreditations

I am a Barrister and Solicitor of the High Court of New Zealand.


About me

I was born in New Zealand but raised in India until the age of 5. I then returned to New Zealand and lived there until moving to the UK with my fiancée. We both have the travel bug and are taking full advantage of being much closer to Europe that we used to be!

My favourite food is a chicken shawarma, accompanied by a well-poured Guinness.

In my spare time, I travel with my fiancée and also enjoy playing tennis and volleyball. I also play the guitar (to varying degrees of success!).

When I was a child, I wanted to be a zookeeper, and my biggest fear is of deep water. If I can’t see the bottom, it’s not a good sign!

My ideal desert island companion would have to be Conan O’Brian – if it all went south, at least I’d go out laughing!
