With many years experience, Lois leads our family and employment team. Lois specialises in relationship property and care of children matters, and advises employers and employees on all aspects of Employment Law including redundancy, dismissals and employment agreements.
Lois was admitted to the bar in 1997 after a varied teaching career both in New Zealand and overseas, and has wide experience in resolving all kinds of family and employment disputes. She is passionate about assisting people in resolving their conflicts in a constructive and practical manner and, like most clients, prefers a mediated approach (where possible) to expensive court processes.
Lois enjoys gardening, travel and music. Lois is the 2017-2018 President of the Papanui Rotary, is on the Board of Trustees at the Arahua Centre and is honorary Solicitor for Petersgate Counselling Centre. Her family activities include keeping in touch with her three lawyer sons (one of whom has appeared before the Privy Council) between Auckland, London and Canada, and spending time with her young grandchildren.
