AWS Legal promotes new partner

AWS Legal has promoted a new partner from its Invercargill office, says the New Zealand Law Society.

Shauna Nicol joined AWS Legal in 2017 and specialises in estates, trusts and private clients. She spent several years working in family law following her admission to the bar in 2009, and the experience has aided her in completing complex estate planning that incorporates relationship property issues and in dealing with estate litigation. She has also handled issues related to property law, commercial transactions and conveyancing.

Nicol has expertise in matters involving care arrangements and disputes for children. She has assisted in obtaining orders in situations where the individuals involved lacked decision-making capacity. She often advises clients on estate planning issues such as wills, trusts and enduring powers of attorney.

Recent promotions by AWS Legal include the appointment of Tim Lindsay as an associate specialising in business, IP, property and corporate law in March. The firm is regarded as the oldest law firm in Invercargill, and also has offices in Queenstown, Alexandra, Cromwell, Gore, Te Anau and Winton.
