Brian Dickey, Auckland’s Crown Prosecutor. His role may be something of a shadow of what it once was under former prosecutor and now Justice Simon Moore, but Brian Dickey’s role as Auckland’s prosecutor remains a central and powerful one in its importance and size.
A partner in long-serving Auckland Crown Prosecution firm Meredith Connell, who have held the Crown warrant for over 90 years, Brian Dickey has handled a large number of financial company collapse prosecutions, including the high profile prosecution of Bridgecorp’s Rod Petricevic.
Married with three sons, Mr Dickey has been with his firm since 1994 and a partner since 2000. He has been acting prosecutor since Simon Moore’s elevation to the High Court in 2014 and formally appointed in 2015. Although the Auckland warrant was split with the establishment of the Manukau warrant-holders – Kayes Fletcher Walker, Meredith Connell still devote around 20 per cent of their work to prosecution activity and as the largest city in the country it sees the most crime.
