I am part of the commercial team in our Auckland office, and am involved in advising on a range of commercial matters with a particular emphasis on property matters.
I have a broad background of related experience, including working in private practice for a generalist firm in New Zealand before spending several years working for specialist property firms in the United Kingdom.
Whilst in the United Kingdom I also qualified as a Solicitor of the Senior Courts of England and Wales and worked for Mayfair’s largest law firm. I have acted for institutional clients as well as high profile individuals across a spectrum of property transactions.
My recent experience includes advising on:
- Development matters, including plot sales contracts for high net worth individuals purchasing in prime central London;
- Sale and purchase of properties, both residential and commercial (including portfolio acquisitions and disposals);
- Investment landlord and tenant matters, including commercial leasing acting for landlords and tenants;
- Residential conveyancing and general private practice matters, including trust and succession planning and private client work
I grew up in the Central Plateau and am a trustee of a Taupo charitable trust aimed at empowering lower decile pre-school children through innovative education.
