I act for and advise clients on a wide range of civil and commercial disputes, and appear regularly in the High Court and appellate courts.
I was previously an academic, first at the University of Nottingham, and then at the University of Auckland, where I was an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Law. From 1998 until 2008 I combined my academic career with practice as a barrister. My practice, teaching, and research has focused on contract law, insurance law, company law, securities regulation, and land law. My research on those subjects has been published in leading texts, as well as in the Cambridge Law Journal, Lloyd's Maritime and Commercial Law Quarterly, the Insurance Law Journal, and the New Zealand Law Review.
Since 2008 I have practised full time at the bar.
