I am a Christchurch – based Barrister and member of Bridgeside Chambers. I have over 36 years’ experience in the areas of civil, commercial, construction and employment dispute resolution and litigation, in all of the NZ civil and employment courts and tribunals up to the Privy Council. I practise a model of strategic dispute resolution in which I help my client identify the preferred outcome at the start of the engagement and we pursue the strategy and tactics best suited to achieving that outcome. My clients have included individuals, companies (large and small), business owners, charitable organisations, Crown entities, school boards, financial institutions and professionals. I am an accredited mediator (AMINZ and Resolution Institute) and accept appointments to mediate or arbitrate disputes. If you’d like to talk to me about how I can help you or your client resolve your legal dispute in a strategically focussed and cost-effective way, contact me by phone on 03 365 9663 or by email at
