Joining Rice Speir’s compliance and enforcement team a few weeks prior to lockdown was a unique way to start with the firm. Fortunately having previously worked with many of the Rice Speir team, it has (almost) felt like business as usual, zoomed together from home into meetings, with the added company of my border terrier Bert at my feet.
With over 7 years’ experience first in a large litigation firm and then in a specialist construction litigation team, I have broad experience in commercial and regulatory litigation, acting for public clients in civil proceedings in both District and High Court. The current environment has called for adaptability in litigation and with trials proceeding this year, our preparation has not been halted by COVID-19! I’ll be working with Nathan, Simon and the team to help clients adjust and move forward from this unprecedented situation.
Post lockdown, I’m looking forward to being a tourist again in New Zealand, meeting many of you and ticking off some bucket list activities, including the Milford Track (maybe with less competition for bookings)!
