Q and A with Timothy

How would you describe your style of practice or your approach to dealing with clients?

I consider myself a people person. With any client interaction I will start by developing a fundamental understanding what that client is trying to achieve, from there I can utilise whatever legal framework is required.

If you had a single piece of advice to give a person in relation to property acquisitions, what would it be?

The most important part is feeling comfortable. Selling your property or buying a new property can be a very exciting time in someone’s life. Enjoy the process and ask questions where you are unsure.

What has had the biggest impact on how you practice law over recent years?

Having recently finished my studies at Victoria University of Wellington law school I have plenty of impactful moments. Dealing with the Socratic method of teaching (where they call your name from a list and you stand up and answer questions) was initially challenging but I have now learnt to think on my feet and effectively pinpoint the issue at hand.

When you are not being a lawyer what do you like doing most?

I love music. I am in a local band where I play guitar, bass and keys. I am also an avid adventurer and have ticked off almost every great walk or mountain in New Zealand.

Who gave you the best piece of advice in relation to your legal career and what was it?

My mother told me to always bring a rain jacket and a packed lunch. That more than anything will hold me in good stead as I progress through my career.
