About Me

A former senior associate at a top tier law firm, Joanne is an experienced commercial and civil litigator. She specialises in the resolution of commercial and civil disputes, particularly those involving media issues, commercial contracts, trusts and estates, relationship property, and intellectual property. Joanne regularly appears before New Zealand Courts.

Joanne has helped clients with disputes across a wide range of areas, including defamation, contract and franchise disputes, employment disputes/personal grievances, relationship property disputes, trust and estate disputes, negligence, copyright, trademarks, confidential information, privacy, consumer disputes/misleading and deceptive conduct, insurance, and shareholder disputes.

Joanne helps clients resolve disputes by providing them with pragmatic, commercially sensible advice about their legal position and the options available to them. She knows that the issues our clients bring to us are important to them so she works to keep clients informed and involved in the process.

While Joanne is experienced in litigation in the courtroom and enjoys a good battle, she knows that court is not always the best option for our clients, so she aims to work with our clients to resolve disputes out of the courtroom where appropriate, utilising a variety of dispute resolution techniques, including negotiation and mediation.
