Qualifications and Experience
I have a First Class degree in Law from the University of Cambridge. I began my legal career as a barrister in England, winning a prestigious scholarship from Gray’s Inn, London. During my 8 years of practice in England I appeared at every tier of the judicial system up to the Court of Appeal, specialist tribunals and Coroner’s Court. On emigrating to New Zealand I used my expertise in negligence law to represent owners of leaky buildings as a lay advocate before being admitted as a barrister and solicitor in New Zealand in 2011. My practice now includes property and construction disputes, insurance and general commercial litigation including liquidations and contractual disputes.
