About Nikki


My Career to Date

I have recently returned from 3 years in London where I worked for the Government Legal Department defending judicial review applications. Previously I have worked for the New Zealand government focusing on employment and privacy law. I am very happy to be back in New Zealand!

My recent work
  • Employment advice
  • Settling employment disputes
  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Sale and purchase agreements
 
My approach to working with my clients

I am approachable and friendly and like to make my clients feel at ease when they seek legal advice. I offer practical advice and try to leave the legal jargon behind.

The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given

 “Do not think that your single vote does not matter much. The rain that refreshes the parched ground is made up of single drops” (Kate Sheppard).

My sisters and I grew up with this quote from John Wooden: “Each day that you fail to do your best you lose something that you can never get back. Make every effort to do the best you can – not because somebody else wants you to, not because you’re expected to, not because somebody before you did. But do the best because of the personal satisfaction and pleasure you can get out of doing a thing well, to the best of your ability”.

What stimulates me

I love working with people and helping clients solve difficult issues.

What I enjoy outside of work

Hosting dinner parties, fishing, sailing, travelling, lounging at the beach and making the most of Wellington’s diverse landscape.

If I wasn’t a lawyer I’d be...

getting paid to travel the world and host a cooking show.
