James and Bryce are both based in our newly refurbished Lower Hutt office.
James has been with the firm since 2016. Prior to joining Gibson Sheat he had been a partner in both Wellington and Auckland law firms. James is a trust law expert, who also specialises in property law. His skill as a magician may also come in handy on some of his particularly difficult property files.
Bryce joined Gibson Sheat in 2009 and was appointed an associate in 2015. He leads our Elder law team handling a wide range of matters from drafting wills, enduring powers of attorney and handling retirement village transactions for individuals, to dealing with deceased estates and estate claims. With his empathetic and caring nature, and his knowledge of elder law, Bryce is a favourite with his elderly clients.
Gibson Sheat now has 15 partners across our three offices, all committed to helping our clients get where they need to be, with pragmatic, down-to-earth legal advice.
