Isabel aims to provide clients with clear and practical legal advice in a cost effective manner. She enjoys getting to know her clients and how their businesses work. She has particular experience in franchising, including drafting franchise agreements and other documentation and advising on the wide variety of issues that arise in franchise systems. Her other practice areas include commercial leasing, business sales and purchases, and negotiating and drafting commercial contracts.
Isabel began her career at a medium-sized Auckland law firm, before moving to London to join the Treasury Solicitor’s Department, part of the UK’s civil service. Isabel then had a career break to have her two children, before working for four years at a general practice law firm in Devonport where she developed her specialisation in business law and commercial leasing.
Isabel has a law degree (with honours) and an arts degree from the University of Auckland. In her spare time she enjoys reading, attending group fitness classes, visiting Auckland’s beaches in summer, and spending quality time with her husband and young children.
