Partner appointment

Migrant Team leader Doris Tu helps support New Zealand's Asian community

Parry Field Lawyers is pleased to announce the promotion of our newest partner, Doris Tu, effective from 1 October.

Doris is a leader in the Commercial and Property team at Parry Field Lawyers and works predominantly with settled and recent migrant investors and their families.

She has experience developing investment structures and negotiating complex contracts for the benefit of her clients.

Doris is fluent in English and Mandarin and comprehends Cantonese and Foo Chow dialects. She is supported by an experienced team of legal staff, fluent in Japanese, Mandarin and Cantonese.

After completing her Masters in Law Doris worked for a law firm in the North Island before joining Parry Field Lawyers in 2012.

Partnership Chair, Kris Morrison, says her promotion from Senior Associate is well deserved and the success of the migrant team that Doris helped establish is a testament to her drive and leadership.

“Doris has been a linchpin of an increasingly important part of our practice. This appointment recognises her personal strengths and also the broadening diversity and capability of our firm as we head into the future.”


Doris says it’s a privilege to be able to join the partnership.

“My initial motivation for entering the legal profession was informed by a sense of calling and a desire to assist those in need by providing advice in a pragmatic manner”.

17 years on from her admission to the bar, her sense of calling remains clear, and she says the Parry Field culture has helped cultivate her desire to continue to provide excellent service to her clients and community by advising ‘to the heart of what matters’.
