It’s a privilege to contribute to a dedicated team focused on supporting high-growth businesses and enhancing New Zealand’s unique ecosystem. I’m passionate about working alongside founders and investors who are driving Kiwi innovation and ingenuity, both locally and internationally.

Clients appreciate my hands-on approach, recognising my knack for getting stuck in, finding solutions, and delivering results. For me, building strong, meaningful relationships is key. I emphasise collaboration and practical solutions, which are central to my method of working. 

My area of expertise lies in handling corporate transactions, with a particular focus on mergers and acquisitions, capital raising, restructuring, and governance issues.

Before my journey with Avid.legal began in 2020, I acquired experience in the corporate team of a large national law firm and worked with corporate clients across a range of sectors. This background has greatly broadened my knowledge and deepened my grasp of the distinct challenges and opportunities present in the business landscape.

Partnering for Your Complete Success

At Avid.legal, we pride ourselves on our deep expertise in corporate, finance, commercial, technology, and data law. However, we understand the complexities of business often requires a broader array of specialties. That's where our philosophy of collaboration shines.

Embracing a Collaborative Approach

We know our strengths, and we celebrate them. Equally, we recognise the value that specialised partners bring to the table in areas like employment, property, tax, competition, IP registration and litigation. It's about complementing our expertise with theirs, ensuring you receive well-rounded, comprehensive advice.

A Partnership That Extends Beyond Avid.legal

Our commitment to your success involves taking the "right horse for the right course" approach, unrestricted by the four walls of a traditional full-service law firm. We have longstanding relationships with several specialist law firms that we partner with across a range of clients and matters.  We advocate for these partners because we believe they can offer the best service to meet your specific needs. We find this to be of enormous benefit to our clients.
