Michelle is a member of the Specialised Land Law Team in the Richmond office and also specialises in litigation and dispute resolution.

She studied law at the University of Otago and along with her Law degree holds a Bachelor of Science (Genetics and Biochemistry) and a Master of Bioethics and Health Law. 

Michelle began her legal career in Nelson in 2012.  After three and a half years working in the litigation team of another local firm, she embarked on her O.E. where she spent 2 years working in London for large, international law firms including Ashurst, Linklaters and Taylor Wessing.  She also had a stint working as an adjudicator for The Housing Ombudsman.

After returning to Nelson in 2018, Michelle has worked to expand her knowledge in both commercial and land law to provide a wide range of legal services in both contentious and non-contentious areas of law.  She also has a keen interest in medico-legal issues and sports law.

Originally from Napier, Michelle now considers Nelson home. Outside of work, Michelle likes spending time with her newly adopted greyhound, Angus.
