MY EXPERIENCE

In 2012 I completed a Master of Laws, undertook an internship in the Buddle Findlay medical law team and won the NZ Law Society Rex Mason award for the best academic article published in New Zealand. From 2013 to 2015 I worked for Principal Family Court Judge of New Zealand in a research counsel role. Since 2016 I have been a self-employed legal researcher and writer working for government agencies, universities, corporate clients and individual barristers. In 2020 I obtained approval from the NZ Law Society to practice on my own account as a barrister and solicitor. I hold a current practicing certificate and can act as an instructing solicitor for sole barristers if required. My main areas of speciality are family, medical, employment and privacy law.
