Litigation & Local Government
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 am studying for my Master of Laws (LLM) at the University of Auckland and have an interest in academic writing, having seen various articles being published.
