I am a UK-qualified lawyer and joined Cooney Lees Morgan’s Property and Development team in September 2019. My expertise include commercial sales and acquisitions, subdivisions, landlord and tenant leasing, and financing.

Prior to moving to New Zealand, I spent two years working for a small boutique firm in London and a further two years specialising in commercial property at a large UK firm where I worked predominately with developers and investors. I have also worked at a mid-sized law firm in Auckland before moving to the Bay of Plenty.

A perfect day for me involves baking a huge chocolate cake followed by a hike in a forest and a picnic on the beach at sunset with friends, family, wine and of course that morning’s freshly baked cake.
