Daniel is a Senior Solicitor in the Litigation Team and is involved in the firm’s litigation, Waitangi Tribunal and Māori land law work.

He regularly advises on Body Corporate matters, including levying and remediation disputes and Body Corporate decision-making, and also works in various other civil areas, including debt recovery, employment and insolvency. Currently involved in the Waitangi Tribunal’s district inquiries and the recently-commenced Health Services and Outcomes Kaupapa Inquiry, Daniel previously worked extensively in providing advice on the proposed reforms to Te Ture Whenua Māori Act.  

Originally from California, via Wanaka, Daniel spent five years traveling in North America and Europe before making his way to Wellington in 2008 to study at Victoria University.

In 2011 he completed his BA in politics and international relations, and in 2014 completed his LLB with First Class Honours. While studying, Daniel was a Law Faculty research assistant focusing on constitutional, administrative and national security law. From that work he has developed a strong interest in those areas, as well as human rights and Treaty of Waitangi law.

Outside of work Daniel volunteers at the Wellington Community Law Centre, and can otherwise be found mountain biking, going to concerts, or adding to his book collection.
