Jen is an Environmental and Resource Management Law specialist with over 10 years’ experience. She has worked closely with Simon Berry for almost a decade.
“The work we do in the environment is important – whether it be delivering essential water and electricity infrastructure to communities or undertaking development which is sensitive to the local environment. Each project is unique and deserves its own innovative solution – being part of a team that delivers those results is a great feeling.”
After completing her degrees in Arts and Law in New South Wales, Jen joined an Environment and Planning team at a major law firm in Sydney, before relocating to Auckland in 2003. Jen is admitted to practice in both New South Wales and New Zealand.
