Partner

I am a partner in the Litigation and Disputes Resolution team focusing on commercial, civil and family litigation.

My goal is to provide sound and practical legal advice that achieves the best outcome for my clients. My ability to see the “big picture” enables me to give strategic and tactical recommendations to my clients. I am a trusted advisor with a positive reputation in the legal industry.

With over 10 years of experience in the profession, my expertise includes contractual disputes, trust and estate matters, company and shareholder issues, property and construction disputes, negligence actions, insurance issues, and relationship property matters. I have represented clients ranging from private individuals to large national companies.

Examples of my experience include:

● Acting for shareholders in shareholder disputes (including in High Court proceedings) property developers, health care providers, and hospitality companies

● Obtaining judgment for partners in a joint venture in an action for breach of joint venture and deceit (including obtaining freezing orders against the opposing parties)

● Defending Overseas Investment Act proceedings issued by the government against a property developer, achieving a settlement on behalf of the property developer

● Successfully representing a large online media company in relation to various defamation claims in the High Court

● Acting in a number of trust proceedings, including successfully obtaining the appointment of an interim trustee on behalf of beneficiaries of a trust and representing a trust in successfully defending a constructive trust claim

● Acting for various creditors in debt recovery proceedings

● Representing professional and business service providers (including auditors, advisors, IT services providers, lawyers, tax accountants, and real estate agents) in relation to contractual, negligence, and Fair Trading Act claims

● Representing builders, engineers, project managers, product manufacturers, and developers in construction dispute

● Acting for and advising insurers on policy interpretation, issues, and indemnity disputes, as well as insurance licensing and regulatory requirements

● Representing parties to relationship property proceedings in the Family Courts, including obtaining judgment on a complex third party loan v gift dispute

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 worked in the litigation team of a large national law firm and at a leading insurance litigation law firm.
