We are taking practical steps to protect our clients, staff, families and the wider community from the spread of COVID-19 under the New Zealand Government COVID-19 Protection Framework (currently RED).  We are able to meet with fully vaccinated clients in our offices by appointment only as we are currently operating with half our team in the office and half our team from home.  We will make alternative arrangements (phone, email & video conference) for clients not fully vaccinated, or not willing to provide their vaccination status.  Appointments are required to be made in advance.  A face covering is required to be worn while visiting our offices.

What I do

At MDS Law I work closely with the wider commercial team dealing with a range of commercial transactions including business sales and purchases, company structuring, business financing and general corporate and commercial advice.

I also have extensive experience in a range of property matters with a particular interest in residential developments and subdivisions.

How I like to work with my clients

I like to work closely with my clients in a collaborative manner, taking into account each client's individual motivations, challenges and needs. I take pride in being approachable and available to clients and believe that open and honest communication is paramount to any client relationship.

My Approach to Client Services

As every client is different, having clear expectations from the beginning of any client relationship allows me to anticipate a client's needs and ensure that those needs are always met. I ensure that the client understands my advice and that it is given in a concise and timely manner.

Building lasting client relationships is important, and allows me to be proactive in assisting clients within all areas of their legal needs.

What I like doing after hours

After hours I enjoy spending time with friends or making a quick dash back to Timaru to visit Family. I love all things sport and outdoors, playing Men’s Premier Football in the winter and training for long distance running events in the summer.
