My career to date

Court work, criminal, civil and commercial disputes at a District and High Court level is where I started. Early, I developed a very strong interest in planning law, now environmental law.  Ultimately, I specialised in enviromental law representing city, regional and district councils, corporate and private clients in a wide variety of forums, advocating and negotiating on their behalf.

What I enjoy about my work

Variety, the opportunity to work alongside many other professionals, solving complex situations, always learning.  These are what I enjoy. It is satisfying and a privilege to help guide clients and accompany them on their journey through to a successful conclusion.  

What you can expect from me

After listening to you and understanding what you want, and why, a clear call, with reasons, on prospects, options, solutions and costs.

What I enjoy away from work

Socialising with friends and family over a well prepared meal.  I thoroughly enjoy many sports, as a spectator these days. I road and mountain bike, kayak and walk in the Port Hills near home.

I enjoy live theatre and I am a keen reader.
