About

I studied law at university and earned the double degree: Bachelor Business (Marketing) / Bachelor of Laws (LLB). I continued my post-graduate studies and earned a Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice. I was admitted to practice as a lawyer, and following nearly 3 years practicing as a commercial litigator with a firm in the city, I began a different role working with a company that develops continuing professional legal education programs for lawyers. In my role I research legislation, case precedents and trends in legal practice, and have developed programs for different jurisdictions nationally and in New Zealand. I have been with this company for 4 years now, and I am currently the New Zealand General Manager.
