Qualifications

Bachelor of Laws, Bachelor of Arts, University of Auckland

Before joining Cooney Lees Morgan’s litigation team in early 2019, I practiced at boutique law firms in both Christchurch and Auckland and also worked under the (now) Chief Coroner.

I have experience in civil, criminal, regulatory and employment litigation, having appeared in Court, tribunals and mediation regularly on behalf of clients in relation to both contentious and non-contentious matters.

Day-to-day I assist clients with disputes and help them solve problems. I have a particular understanding of insolvency and contractual matters, as well as experience in  employment law, both dispute resolution and in an advisory capacity.  I also have experience in estate litigation, Fair Trading and Consumer law, contract and tort disputes and general civil matters. 

I am also studying for my  Master of Laws (LLM) at the University of Auckland and have an interest in  academic writing, with various articles being published.
