About Me

I am not an old school barrister. I conduct litigation in progressive and unpredictable ways. I focus on the following practice areas: criminal proceeds, financial crime, AML and regulatory defence, civil and criminal issues related to organised criminal activity, human and civil rights, civil claims against Police, search and surveillance, and test litigation. I conducted test litigation and reformative advocacy from an early stage of my career. You can visit my website here or one of my various social media channels.

The best way to contact me is email first, then text, signal, WhatsApp, DMs on social media channels, or telegram message. The slowest way to contact me is by telephone.

I regularly work and appear in Northland, East Coast, Taranaki, and Auckland. Auckland is my main location.
