I am a lawyer at AgResearch. I qualified originally as a lawyer in Ireland after completing an International BA in English Literature and French at University College Dublin, including an Erasumus year at Université Libre de Bruxelles. I worked for seven years in Ireland as an in-house lawyer, mainly in local government, before moving to New Zealand and cross converting to practice law here. I commenced my legal career in Aotearoa in private practice before joining AgResearch in 2022.
