Joel Fotu Special Counsel
“Before I joined Glaister Ennor I worked for over thirty years with LINZ, the last seven as a senior legal advisor.
I am an expert advisor on all land transfer matters (the Land Transfer Act, Public Works Act and Unit Titles Act) for clients and for other members of the legal profession.
There are many, complex legislative provisions – both historical and current – that are relevant and applicable to conveyancing in New Zealand. With my thorough working knowledge and experience of them including the Land Transfer Act, Property Law and the Land Act to name a few – including the resolution of difficult issues like Maori land, complex titles, adverse possession and customary land use – I am able to advise and help clients and other lawyers.
I can speak Tongan and understand Niuean”
