I am a Crown Counsel and Commercial Litigator. I have been Crown Counsel since 2011 and have appeared for the Crown in many criminal trials since then in the High and District Court.

Prior to working at Hollister-Jones Lellman I worked in a large corporate firm dealing with a range of litigation including leaky building, commercial and debt collection matters.  I have experience representing private clients in mediations and settlement conferences and have appeared in the District Court, High Court and Court of Appeal.  I have experience in the preparation of and appearances on all aspects of insolvency including bankruptcy and liquidation and conducting debt recovery action.

I have developed particular expertise in the area of criminal law including:

  • all aspects of criminal proceedings in the High Court and District Courts.
  • the preparation of and appearances on civil action representing the New Zealand Police and other Government agencies.
  • all aspects of the preparation of and appearance on prosecutions brought on behalf of other Government agencies.
  • the preparation of and appearances for the Commissioner of Police in relation to actions under the Criminal Proceeds (Recovery) Act 2009.
