The firm is delighted to announce the appointment of immigration Special Counsel Nicky Robertson, adding depth of talent and expertise to our national immigration offering.
Nicky is a specialist immigration lawyer with over 13 years’ experience assisting employers with employer accreditation and employees’ visas. She also assists individual clients, both onshore and offshore, with all types of visa applications and appeals.
She has considerable experience assisting with complex immigration issues. This includes helping prepare challenging medical and character waiver submissions, requests to the Minister of Immigration seeking the grant of special directions, appeals to the Immigration and Protection Tribunal, and contesting deportation liabilities.
“Nicky is a highly regarded immigration lawyer, so we are particularly pleased that our clients can now benefit from additional senior technical expertise in our immigration practice” said Nicola Tiffen, Duncan Cotterill Partner.
Nicky’s appointment reflects the increasing need businesses and individuals have for legal guidance when navigating migration to New Zealand. The firm’s immigration practice, led by Nicola Tiffen, continues to experience significant demand following the opening of New Zealand’s borders and almost constant changes to the visa requirements. “Nicky’s assured manner and significant experience in navigating the changes to the visa laws will be of particular benefit to our clients” commented Nicola. Nicky’s addition will complement Duncan Cotterill’s national offering, with specialist immigration lawyers located in all three main centres.
