Knapps Lawyers Gerard Praat

Gerard is very much the family man having spent the last 25 odd years raising his three strapping lads with wife, Megan. With the boys recently flying the coop, Gerard is now dangerously free to pursue his much guarded secret hobby – DIY and is often found plotting the next foray into the improvement of the backyard or grappling with the latest power tool.

Gerard’s working life couldn’t be more different. He specializes in helping clients resolve all kinds of disputes. He says, “the answers to many problems more often than not lie in a mixture of legal advice and practical considerations.”

He believes the success of Knapps is down to the genuine desire of staff to help clients and which is done with a great deal of empathy. This is reinforced by the informal and down to earth culture of the firm which he believes instantly removes barriers and makes clients comfortable.

Gerard is an active member of the New Zealand Law Society.
