Lisa joined the firm as a partner in July 2017. She brings with her a wealth of experience as a civil litigator, whose practise has spanned a significant range of dispute areas over more than 20 years.
Prior to joining the firm, most recently Lisa has been a partner in a well-known Auckland litigation firm specialising in dispute resolution, with a client base spread throughout the whole of New Zealand.
Lisa takes a pragmatic approach to disputes. As well as having considerable experience in dealing with complex legal and factual issues in the context of court proceedings, she is a strong supporter of alternative dispute resolution processes. She has been involved in countless mediations, and has a strong record of successfully resolving disputes through negotiation and the mediation process, in particular.
On a personal level and having lived most of her life in big cities, Lisa now lives with her family on a rural lifestyle block where she nurtures her passion for gardening.
