Olivia Rose

It’s in Olivia’s nature to go above and beyond to help her clients. No job is too big or too small. She thrives on a challenge but equally sees even the smallest of jobs as an opportunity to learn and expand her repertoire.

Olivia embarked on her legal career with us after completing her Bachelor of Law with Honours at Auckland University. She has now well and truly found her feet and is an integral part of the litigation team.

On the inside, people seek out her ability to envision the law from different angles.

On the outside, her spice of life is variety – her tendency to try new things means she has tried her hand at pottery, has been off-roading, sewed her own kimono and jumped out of a plane.

On the inside, Mary is keen, approachable and really enjoys collaborating with colleagues.

Her commitment to helping her clients navigate difficult situations and her considerate, intelligent approach reflect the fact that she once thought of becoming a diplomat; which is why she majored in German, politics and international relations as well as law.

On the inside, Amy is our go-to for pragmatism and common sense.

On the outside she spends almost as much time with her family and friends as she does with her puppy. In fact, she’d take them all travelling and tramping with her if she could.

On the inside, he’s our go-to for incisive, effective thinking and regular humorous comments.
