After obtaining a Bachelor of Commerce from Lincoln University and a Bachelor of Laws from University of Otago, Sam returned to Hawke’s Bay to begin practising law before joining the Cavell Leitch Litigation Team in Christchurch in 2015.
He has experience acting for clients on a range of general matters ranging from conveyancing, wills, trusts, through to insolvency and dispute resolution. Sam is particularly interested in debt recovery and insolvency matters, and has provided advice to creditors and debtors as well as liquidators regarding insolvent transactions.
Sam enjoys the interaction with clients and developing solid and trusting relationships. Sam believes it is important to provide precise, practical advice while not losing sight of the client’s desired result.
