I am a New Zealand qualified disputes lawyer with experience in dealing with complex and novel disputes.
Before joining Bevan Brittan, I worked in large law firms in New Zealand as a commercial and regulatory litigator, working closely with a range of government agencies and private commercial clients. In addition to this civil experience, I worked as a Crown prosecutor at the Office of the Auckland Crown Solicitor, where I appeared regularly as Counsel in the District Court and High Court conducting jury trials and other criminal hearings.
I graduated from the University of Auckland with an Honours degree in Law and a Bachelor of Arts. I hold a Master of Laws from the London School of Economics and Political Science.
