Ian Turner(Richmond)

Partner

Family Trust Team

If Ian wasn’t a lawyer, he would either be a chef, opera singer or a novelist so it is no surprise that when not at work he can be found either cooking, listening to music or reading!

When in the office, he is our Family Trust guru and is now regarded as one of Nelson’s leading specialists in this area. Over the years he has also developed a considerable commercial practice and acts for a number of Richmond based sizeable businesses.

Ian joined Knapps in 1991 having moved from Wellington where he worked for city firm, Phillips Fox. He was made a partner at Knapps in 1993.

He believes the success of Knapps is down to very talented people who are technically capable but more importantly are able to deal with legal issues on a common sense basis.
