I joined Cooney Lees Morgan in 1980 becoming  a partner in 1983 and I am the firm’s Notary Public.

I have extensive experience in property investment, both commercial and residential as well as experience in trust management and wills and estate matters. I also supervise our estate’s team.

I advise a number of individuals and families and carry out their legal work, often for the second and sometimes third generation.

I am currently Chairman of Directors for First Mortgage Managers Limited, a company which manages First Mortgage Trust, a trust fund in excess of $300million.

Having grown up in Tauranga and received my schooling here, I appreciate the growth of our city and the work/life balances it offers.

I am involved in a number of Community Organisations and I am currently the Legal Advisor to Rotary District 9930.

Examples of work:
