Lisa joined as a partner in July 2017. She brings with her a wealth of experience as a civil litigator, having helped countless businesses successfully resolve their disputes over the past 25 years.
Lisa is pragmatic and straight talking, with a unique talent in creating solutions that lead to a quicker, more economical settlement.
Skilled in the art of negotiation and mediation, she is a strong supporter of the alternative dispute resolution process. Prior to joining Treadwell Gordon, Lisa was a partner at a well-known Auckland litigation law firm (Heaney & Partners). During her time at this firm, Lisa and her colleagues, arguably, managed more mediations than any other in the country.
Where it is necessary to battle the matter out in court, Lisa is fully conversant with court processes and can help you enforce or defend your legal rights through the high court or district court claims.
Having lived the first part of her life practicing in city law firms (Auckland and London), Lisa now bases herself from her Clevedon home office, where she also lives with her family: her husband, two young adult sons, ten cows, two dogs, and too many ducks to count.
Lisa devotes her specialist litigation expertise to help businesses with their conflicts in both the Whanganui and South Auckland region.
