Samual Welsh

Senior Associate

I specialise in civil and commercial litigation and dispute resolution. I provide advice and advocacy to clients across a broad range of commercial disputes, with a particular focus on trust issues, insurance matters, professional negligence and fraud.   

I am an experienced litigator and have appeared as counsel in the District Court and High Court. My experience includes advising on complex commercial disputes in the areas of construction, property, consumer protection, contract and negligence claims.  

I started my career at another large law firm in New Zealand and joined Duncan Cotterill after several years working at leading international firms in London. I also have in-house experience having worked at a leading New Zealand insurance company.  

I take a pragmatic and commercial approach and enjoy helping clients achieve their goals, be that through negotiation, alternative dispute resolution, or Court proceedings.
