"Making sure they are fair"

I practise in the tax and commercial area of law. I have appeared in the Taxation Review Authority, District Court, the High Court and Court of Appeal on taxation matters, including judicial review, tax prosecutions and tax cases.

I graduated from Waikato University  with a Master of Laws degree. My masters study was in tax law and commercial law.

Many of my best successes have come from negotiations preceding tax litigation where  I  have been able to save clients many hundreds of thousands of dollars by carefully identifying the  points IRD does not want litigated.

I often travel to Auckland for appearances and to discuss  cases with clients. My location in Hamilton is not a logistic problem and  the benefits of the lower overheads when operating from Hamilton accrues to the clients.

I have wide experience in commercial litigation of many types including business sale disputes,  restraint of trade, mitigation of damages, waiver etc.
