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 joined Parry Field in 1997, after a varied teaching career both in New Zealand and overseas. She has experience in resolving all kinds of family and employment disputes. Lois is passionate about assisting people to resolve 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 was President of the Papanui Rotary in 2017-2018, 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, Christchurch and London, and spending time with her young grandchildren.
