Qualifications

Master of Laws (Distinction), Bachelor of Laws, Bachelor of Arts, University of Auckland

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

I have a wide range of experience across different areas of litigation, appearing 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 to solve problems. I have a particular understanding of insolvency and civil matters, as well as employment law, both dispute resolution and in an advisory capacity. 

I hold a Master of Laws (LLM)  with distinction in Litigation and Dispute Resolution from the University of Auckland and have an ongoing interest in  academic writing, having had various articles published.
