I am based at our Ferrymead office where I started as a legal executive in February 2016.
I have a PhD in Law from the University of Otago, along with a Masters of Law and Bachelor of Laws (with Honours) from the National University of Malaysia.
I am fluent in the Malay and Tamil languages and able to communicate with people from a number of countries such as Indonesia, Singapore, Southern India, Southern Thailand, Brunei, and Sri Lanka. My cultural background and language skills are useful in immigration law and any other areas that involve migrants and their settlement process in New Zealand, such as property conveyancing, estates administration, wills, trusts, setting up businesses and companies and other commercial matters.
I am active in various projects organised by the New Zealand Society of Interpreters and Translators, including being involved in translating the Treaty of Waitangi into Malay language.
