Early into her 30s, Aasha Foley has already made incredible strides in the legal profession. A new mum and managing partner of a firm with 17 staff and two offices, Foley leads a team of young lawyers. Specialising in corporate and commercial law, she has experience in commercial, property and finance transactions, as well as intellectual propertyrelated commercial transactions. She handles everything from $150m developments to debt from offshore lenders and investors, as well as international, SME and private clients.

Foley took the hard road into the profession, driven by a desire to help people succeed using the law. Her legal journey started in 2011, when she took a position as a trade mark and patent secretary with James & Wells. She then quickly moved into the new commercial team, juggling life as a personal assistant, patent secretary and law clerk. After demonstrating an ability to handle an enormous workload across a variety of practice areas, Foley was subsequently appointed as a solicitor.

After a short period of time and experience in another leading Waikato firm, Foley had built a thriving practice focused on SMEs, private clients and property developers. In 2017, she co-founded iCLAW with her business partner and long-time colleague, Owen Culliney. It’s been nearly four years since then, and Foley continues to excel in her career, assisting clients with their commercial endeavours.
