Paul leads our dispute resolution team with an innovative and enthusiastic approach. His special interest areas include insurance, shareholder and business disputes, will and estate challenges, judicial reviews and relationship property.
He enjoys both the strategy of leading cases, and advocacy in Court. In his twenty plus years’ experience he has won cases across all Courts and most tribunals in New Zealand. He is admitted to the Bar in NZ, Australia and Fiji. Paul also has a knack for finding alternative ways to resolve conflict without the need for a full trial.
Paul has lived abroad in Europe, Australia and Fiji. He has experience as a director of companies in the not-for-profit, aged care and property sectors, and working with a number of voluntary organisations. He balances his work with his love of sailing, tramping, travel and music. Paul and his wife have two adult children, and three boisterous dogs now filling the empty nest.
