I am a Partner at Parry Field Lawyers based in Christchurch. I help start-up companies as well as more mature tech companies, social enterprises and others. After 11 years overseas working for an international law firm in Tokyo (4 years), London (3 years) and Sydney (4 years) and 3 years in Wellington, I returned at the start of 2016 and so bring a unique perspective and proactive approach to issues faced by clients. I work with both New Zealand and international companies with a strong focus on those investing here.
I have a unique focus on empowering impact and published the book: “Social Enterprises in New Zealand: A Legal Handbook”. To educate and grow the impact ecosystem I host a podcast “Seeds” www.theseeds.nz interviewing inspiring people with almost 100 interviews and more than 25,000 listens. Am not a stranger to being involved in a start-up myself as co-founder of an IT start-up focusing on AI enabled chatbot solutions: http://activeassociate.com/.
I graduated from Canterbury University before working for a national law firm in Wellington for 3 years and then joining Norton Rose Fulbright in 2005 for 11 years. I had two secondments to clients – the in house legal team of the Japanese trading house Mitsui in Tokyo (2 years) and Caltex in Sydney (1 year). Currently hold practising certificate for New Zealand but have also qualified in England & Wales and New South Wales.
I’d love the chance to talk with you about how our team could help yours.
