LLB, LLM (Hons), BA
I am an experienced commercial lawyer who has worked in in-house and private practice roles across the public and private sectors both in New Zealand and the UK.
While in the UK, I worked for one of the world’s largest sports-betting and gaming groups, operating both online and in the retail sector. I advised on a wide range of areas of law, including commercial law, gambling regulatory law, IP law, and dispute resolution. The invaluable experience gained at this company provided me with the opportunity to work for a start-up gaming company assisting them to enter into the UK market and obtaining their UK Gambling Licence.
Upon my return to New Zealand, I have held in-house legal roles with additional duties and responsibilities as the company secretary, privacy officer and legal relationship manager which I have thoroughly enjoyed.
My pragmatic and collaborative style is underpinned by strong commercial awareness. I am driven to find workable solutions and to deliver every task to the highest standard.

Legal Counsel, Seequent
Jane arrived, got up to speed, and took a moment to understand the cultural diversity and nuances of the team. She worked collaboratively, built trust quickly, and deftly managed a number of complex situations very well. Frankly, a star. Please return.
Executive Vice President EMEA, Seequent
Jane fitted in seamlessly with her sense of humour as well as top-notch skills. She exhibited excellent perseverance when working with our overseas entity and customers, as they had a very laborious process for contracting documentation.
Chief Revenue Officer, Seequent
Jane was a pool of knowledge and support to the team. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for results that benefit both parties. She is an absolute treasure and asset. I can’t recommend her ability and care high enough. Total star.⭐
