Ashleigh Rush

Senior Registered Legal Executive

I am part of the Nelson private client team. While I have a broad range of experience across private client matters, my main areas of expertise centre around estate administration, asset planning and trust administration. 

I manage the Nelson estate practice and assist clients throughout the estate administration process, including applying for grants of probate and letters of administration, and acting for executors and trustees in the subsequent administration of estates. I am also involved in all areas of estate planning, including wills, family trusts and enduring powers of attorney. We have a large trust practice in Nelson and I assist with the management of our trust client portfolio, including establishing and administering trusts, gifting, trustee duties and asset planning. 

I understand that I am often working with clients through very difficult times and I endeavour to bring an empathetic and practical approach to my work.

I am an Associate of the New Zealand Institute of Legal Executives.
