Sarah Henderson


I am a civil litigation specialist in the Christchurch litigation and dispute resolution team. I focus on getting a result for a client based on what is important to them and minimising the fall-out from any dispute.

My recent experience includes:

  • Construction contracts and disputes for adjudications.
  • Acting on a wide range of insurance disputes for both insureds and insurers.
  • A significant arbitration in the dairy industry.
  • Advising on professional negligence claims and disciplinary matters.

I started my career working for the California Earthquake Authority. Before joining Duncan Cotterill, I worked for Community Law Canterbury and for a law firm advising on large commercial insurance disputes.

I am on the committee for the Insurance Network and a member of the Society of Construction Law of New Zealand.

I am currently on parental leave.
