I am an intellectual property lawyer, patent attorney and notary public. I have practised in Wellington for many years and am proud to call Wellington home.


I work with a range of businesses to help secure their IP rights.  My clients include individual entrepreneurs through to large research based organisations and businesses.  I also provide assistance to lawyers who require more in depth knowledge of IP matters when advising their clients.

As a notary, I help people who need documents notarised and legalised, mainly for use overseas.

My technical qualification is in chemistry, but I have experience in a range of technical subject matters and am able to advise on a range of technologies.

Please feel free to give me a call if you have any questions.
