DDI: (09) 553 9236

I have over 12 years experience and prior to joining Steindle Williams Legal I had several years’ experience both as a Research Counsel in the District Court (examining legal issues in both the civil and criminal contexts), and then in civil litigation with a boutique firm with a particular focus on Unit Titles.

I work closely with David Hoskin in all aspects of the litigation process, including proceedings involving:

  • Contract termination disputes;
  • Large-scale corporate litigation against former employees;
  • Leaky building litigation;
  • Estate disputes, including Will challenge, executor’s obligations and historic loans;
  • Discharges without conviction;
  • Limited licences;
  • Sustainability of caveat;
  • Directors’ obligations;
  • Fisheries prosecutions
  • Employment disputes.

I believe in precise pragmatism in respect of each issue faced by our clients, with a firm belief that the most effective solution to any problem is found in having both the problem and solution well defined.
