Working with me

I am now practising as a barrister. As a barrister, I can provide legal advice to clients directly

My goal is to provide advice in the form you want, when you want it. For litigation matters, I need to be instructed by a solicitor. For councils and other organisations, this can include one of the national or local providers on your legal services panel. For individuals, this can include your every-day lawyer.

We can discuss your representation options so that you can decide what is best for you.

How I can help

A large part of my work relates to supporting decision-makers and those interacting with decision-makers to get the best decision possible. These are some examples of how I can help.

Are you a decision-maker wanting guidance on an aspect of the decision-making process?
Is the decision or your process being challenged?
Are you interacting with a decision-maker and have a legal issue with the way the decision is being made?
Do you need advice on an issue of legal interpretation?
Do you need a legal review of some documentation?

About Me

I have a genuine interest in local government, starting my career as a policy analyst at a council. I then started practising as a lawyer in the fields of local government, resource management and civil litigation.

Over this time, I built a specialisation in local government funding and financing, regularly presenting on these issues to sector organisations, and have been involved in the key recent challenges to local government funding decisions, usually appearing as junior counsel. I have also provided legal review/peer review of good practice guides for local government.

I am a proud member of Kate Sheppard Chambers.
