Queenstown Lakes firm Todd & Walker has appointed Ben King to the role of partner.

A born-and-raised Wānaka local, King will head a team of five staff, complementing the Queenstown team. He is the firm’s first Wānaka-based partner, and specialises in conveyancing, property development, and commercial law.

“I’ve seen Wānaka grow from a small town to the vibrant community that it is now,” King said. “It really helps to have an understanding of the local history and context for my day-to-day work.”

“The legal issues we deal with can be complex and having been involved in the region for some time I have become inherently familiar with what’s going on,” King added.

“[King’s] ability to deliver expert, concise and practical legal advice is first-class,” said Graeme Todd, firm’s co-founder. “It’s easy to see why our Wānaka office boasts an enviable client list including some of the biggest property developers in the region.”

Todd also unveiled plans for the firm’s Wānaka office. “We see Wānaka as an integral part of the future of our region, and we have invested heavily to establish an office and grow our team here. We are delighted to welcome Ben King as a partner to further enhance our commitment to the area.”
