This 1.5 hour webinar outlines how to use an electronic casebook.

Phillip Cornege, Tim Rainey and Felix Geiringer have been using electronic casebooks in their hearings for some years now. In this webinar, they will show you the best ways to navigate through the casebook and tips and tricks to make them work better for you and for the court.  If you want to use your casebook to its best advantage, this webinar is for you.

Our Presenters:


Phillip Cornegé is an experienced litigator, providing advice and representation on a range of civil, criminal, and public law matters. He also acts for defendants in regulatory and professional disciplinary proceedings, and before sporting (including racing) disciplinary bodies. Phillip has worked in leading commercial firms and the Crown Solicitor's office at Hamilton. He is an effective trial and appellate advocate, having appeared as lead counsel in over 100 trials and appeals. He is also an experienced negotiator. Phillip uses up-to-date technology to provide the best possible experience for his clients. He provides an efficient, timely, and cost-effective service.

Tim Rainey is a senior commercial barrister who is highly respected by his colleagues and other members of the profession. He is frequently consulted by other lawyers, their clients and industry groups for advice on discreet legal issues and strategic input to their cases. Tim is often called upon to deliver seminars on burning issues and developments in areas such as property law, the Building Act, Unit Titles Act, construction and negligence.

Tim has worked exclusively in litigation since he was admitted to the bar in 1992. He formed his own firm, Rainey Law, in 2009 and built that into a highly successful specialist litigation practice. He left that firm in August 2018 to join the independent Bar.‍

He regularly represents clients in courts and specialist tribunals across New Zealand. A career highlight was his successful appeal to the Supreme Court for clients in Osborne v Auckland Council & Weathertight Homes Tribunal [2014] 1 NZLR 766, in which he persuaded the Supreme Court to overturn rulings in four High Court cases and paved the way for numerous claimants by creating new eligibility criteria under the WHRS Act 2006. That decision was backed up with a further success in the Supreme Court in Lee v Whangarei District Council [2017] 1 NZLR 401 where he persuaded the Supreme Court to overturn prior decisions in the High Court and Court of Appeal and extend the limitation advantages from bringing a claim under the WHRS Act 2006 to all proceedings.‍‍

Tim’s skill and expertise spans most areas of commercial and civil litigation, in the areas of property and construction disputes and contractual issues. He has also advised and represented parties in trust disputes, relationship property and related issues.


Felix Geiringer, joined the Council in 2019. He has been an active member of several Association committees and this year became co-chair of the Advocacy Committee. Felix has a broad practice based in Wellington. He has been involved in high-profile cases, particularly in the fields of commercial law, defamation, human rights, trusts, and Te Tiriti o Waitangi. Felix previously worked for Clifford Chance (London) in its banking regulation team.
