Quay Chambers has announced the addition of Scott Gazley, a construction specialist and civil litigator, to its ranks. Gazley joins the Chambers in Britomart, Auckland.

Gazley was admitted as a barrister and solicitor in 2011. He has expertise in litigation and alternative dispute resolution. His practice areas include commercial and residential property, professional negligence, and company, business, and consumer. His career is marked by appearances as sole counsel in courts including the Court of Appeal, High Court, District Court, and various tribunals.

Before embracing the independent bar, Gazley worked at leading law firms in New Zealand and London, where he was involved in various civil and commercial cases. His clients have ranged from listed and private companies to government entities, local government, and individuals. Before this, he served at K&L Gates LLP and Hausfeld LLP.

Gazley describes himself as a pragmatic lawyer passionate about providing transparent, cost-effective legal services. “That is not just about winning cases, but, with minimal costs and time, achieving results that clients know are fair and best meet their own needs,” he noted in his profile on the Quay Chambers site.

“Quay Chambers is pleased to add Scott to its membership,” said Quay Chambers member Harry Waalkens KC. “Scott’s practice across a wide range of civil litigation areas enhances the breadth of experience we have in Chambers and is a welcome addition.”

Among the notable cases in which Gazley was involved include Rongotai Investments Ltd v Land Valuation Tribunal in 2022, Huang v Huang in 2021, and Auckland Electrical Solutions Limited v The Warrington Group Limited in 2016.

Gazley is a member of several prestigious legal societies, including the New Zealand Law Society, the New Zealand Bar Association, and the Society of Construction Law (NZ).
