Daniel Baxter

Senior Solicitor


My career to date

Since completing a double degree in Law and Arts (majoring in Geography and minoring in Environmental Management) from the University of Otago in 2015, I began my legal career in Taupo, in 2016.

 In Taupo I specialised in the Criminal, Civil and Maori Land Law areas, gaining regular appearances in the Maori Land, District and High Courts.

After originally planning to start my OE in 2020, but being interrupted by Covid-19, I decided to take up the opportunity with Adderley Head to practice Resource Management and Environmental Law.

What I enjoy about my work

Working in the Resource Management and Environmental Law provides me the opportunity to be a part of the decision making process that not only effects the environment I, my family and friends live in, but also what future generations will experience. 

What you can expect from me

I am a people person who is focused on understanding my clients' goals and in turn providing my clients a clear path to reaching those goals.

What I enjoy outside of work

I am keen on my sport and am involved in both playing senior Rugby here in Christchurch and competing in Jiu-Jitsu.  Outside of sport I enjoy traveling and catching up with friends and family.
