Steve’s technical competencies in construction and commercial contracts reflects in the many contractors, both national and local, for whom he acts and the steady referrals of work received across New Zealand.
While Steve was born in Wellington and has family and business connections both in Wellington and Auckland, he regards himself as local to Taranaki having spent most of his primary school and high school years in New Plymouth. During his time as a lawyer Steve has also attended to a wide range of general legal practice including Property, Employment, Trusts, Wills, Estates, Leases, Easements and land access arrangements for major infrastructural resources. Steve’s accumulated experience stands out to those seeking answers to difficult legal issues and, for that reason, Steve is often consulted or engaged on litigation work.
When Steve is not working he enjoys cycling, golf and football, and indulging in fishing and boating activities with his family as often as possible on Lake Taupo and off the Taranaki coast.
Steve firmly believes that:
“The purpose of the law is to benefit everyone fairly and justly. My job is to deliver a generous share of that fairness and justice to C&M Legal’s clients by understanding their needs and achieving tangible benefits as economically as possible.”
