As a Senior Solicitor in Cooney Lees Morgan’s Property and Development Team, I work closely with Cameron Russell to advise clients on a range of property and commercial matters. 

I grew up in the Wairarapa and began my legal career in Auckland before spending several years at a London Magic Circle firm. In late 2017 I moved to Tauranga and worked for another local firm before joining Cooneys in April 2019. 
Helping my clients reach their desired outcomes in the most seamless manner and providing quality and easy-to-understand advice, tailored to get the best results, is what I really enjoy.
Outside of work I love travelling, baking, any form of exercise (whether walking the dog, the gym or snowboarding) and spending time with my friends and family. I have a real passion for fitness and dogs so if I wasn’t a lawyer, I would probably be a personal trainer or look to own a doggy day care. 
A perfect day would be spending time with friends or family at my family bach in Kuratau, Lake Taupo. It would involve going for a run or walk with my dog followed by a fish in the afternoon on the lake with a few drinks during summer, or snowboarding at Mt Ruapehu in winter.
Lucy is currently away on maternity leave.
