I have practised law and been with Steindle Williams Legal since 2007. During that time I have acted for a wide variety of clients from individuals and small business owners to large businesses and high net worth people and have been involved in a number of international commercial transactions.

I practise across a broad range of areas including property, leasing, estate and tax planning, construction, commercial and company law, trusts, insolvency, dispute resolution and general structuring. With such a broad grounding I am able to proactively identify key issues for the client and pride myself on my ability to find unique and practical solutions to meet my client’s needs.

I have written a number of articles and have presented at seminars for the Auckland Property Investors Association.

My recent experience includes:

  • Acting for clients in the formation of international business structures.
  • Acting in respect of the sale of a large overseas business ($50 million NZD) and dealing with a variety of cross jurisdictional issues.
  • Providing structuring advice to a number of clients from small and large business owners.
  • Drafting, negotiation and acting for landlords and tenants in commercial leasing matters.
  • Acting for clients in a variety of complicated disputes and commercial negotiations.
  • Drafting and offering estate and tax planning advice for a diverse range of clients.
  • General commercial and residential property work.
