After more than 10 years with award winning Boutique law firm, Queen City Law, Tina mainly practises in construction and litigation.

Tina is readily requested to assist in reviewing construction and consultancy agreements on construction projects as well as in resolving construction disputes. This can lead to litigation which she also attends to. Tina has developed expertise in construction issues and has presented papers at a number of New Zealand conferences and seminars on construction law. She contributes regularly to the Builders & Contractors Magazine.
