Amanda emigrated to Nelson in 2014 after 15 years as a Partner in a large regional law firm in the UK and is qualified to practice both in the UK and in New Zealand.  She has successfully crossed the bridge from Litigator to Advisor and is able to resolve disputes as well as give pragmatic advice designed to avoid them.  As head of our large Trusts and Estates practice, Amanda routinely advises clients on Inheritance Planning, complex Estate Administration, capacity issues, validity of Wills and all aspects of Elder Law including Retirement Villages purchases.  She also manages disputes under the Family Protection and Testamentary Promises Acts, working closely with our Litigation Team.

Music and theatre have always been a part of Amanda’s history. Having founded a rock band and choir back in England, she has been involved in a number of local theatrical productions and currently sings with vocal trio, The Flightless Birds.

Amanda has been our Managing Partner since April 2020.
