Senior Associate

I am a barrister and solicitor of the High Court of New Zealand.

I am a Senior Associate in the Litigation and Disputes Resolution team at Glaister Ennor specialising as a commercial and civil litigator. My experience covers a wide range of areas including contractual disputes, trust and property matters, construction disputes, negligence actions, insurance issues, and relationship property matters. I have represented clients ranging from private individuals to large companies.

I hold a bachelor of law and arts from the University of Auckland (including a semester at the University of Virginia School of Law). Before joining Glaister Ennor, I spent two years in the general litigation team of a large national law firm and four years at a leading insurance litigation law firm.

Examples of my experience, some of which are proceedings in the High Court, include:

  • acting for shareholders in a shareholder dispute in relation to a property development company
  • acting for partners in a joint venture in an action for breach of joint venture and deceit (including obtaining freezing orders against the opposing parties)
  • advising a large online media company in relation to defamation and copyright issues
  • representing the beneficiaries of a trust in a claim for breach of trust by a trustee
  • representing professional and business service providers (including auditors, advisors, IT services providers, lawyers, tax accountants, and real estate agents) in relation to such matters as contractual, negligence, and Fair Trading Act
  • acting for, and advising, insurers on policy interpretation, issues, and indemnity disputes, as well as insurance licensing and regulatory requirements
  • representing builders, engineers, project managers, product manufacturers, and developers in construction disputes
  • representing parties to relationship property proceedings; and
  • advising clients on Official Information Act, and privacy rights and obligations.

My goal is to provide sound and practical legal advice that achieves the best outcome for my clients.
