I am a Senior Associate in our litigation and dispute resolution team based in Auckland. I have nearly 15 years of experience as an insurance litigator and have largely acted for panel law firms throughout that time.
My particular expertise is in professional indemnity insurance for a wide range of professionals, including architects, engineers and medical professionals. I also provide indemnity and liability advice to insurers regarding complex claims, including material damage, business interruption and statutory liability. I regularly appear before the District, High and Courts of Appeal and other specialist bodies. I have experience in both small and large scale litigation.
I have experience as both in-house and external counsel, as well as overseas (Australia) experience. This experience gives me a unique and clear understanding of the challenges that my clients and their customers face and the importance of providing advice that assists them and their individual needs. I focus on providing my clients with clear, pragmatic, economic, and thorough advice that assists them and their clients with their specific challenges.
