Ian has worked in property law for many years and has extensive experience in all aspects of mortgage recovery work, subdivisional work, and building management.
A former partner in Gibson Sheat's Lower Hutt office, Ian has recently become a consultant. He specialises in mortgage recovery work, acting for a major New Zealand banking group, and his expertise includes general property law, subdivisions, and commercial property work, as well as residential and commercial conveyancing, and private client work, particularly creation and administration of trusts.
For a number of years, Ian has acted for a major Wellington property developer in all aspects of their residential subdivisions. He has drafted the full range of land covenants, easements, and leases for a wide range of clients.
Outside of work, Ian enjoys spending time with his family, gardening and playing golf. Ian currently has a handicap of 10 and would love to get this down to a 9 - just so he can say he plays off a single-figure handicap!
