My Practice

Specialist Resource Management Advice

Focussing on providing strategic advice to clients as an experienced advocate

Cost-conscious

Legal advice can be expensive as it is often time consuming.  My hourly rate is very competitive and I am happy to provide estimates.  As an experienced practitioner with a wealth of knowledge in this area of the law, I am efficient and effective with a clear focus on value.

Dispute Resolution

Mediation and dispute resolution are important processes in environmental law that often produce successful and enduring outcomes and I am proud of my record in this area.  Although litigation has a role, I  encourage clients to engage in out of court settlements where this is in their best interests.

Working as a Barrister

You can e-mail me at gillian@chappell.nz or otherwise contact me via my contact details. As a barrister, I can usually take instructions directly or where appropriate, can work through a solicitor.

Working as part of a team

I enjoy working with multi-disciplinary teams to achieve the best results for clients.  I also frequently work with instructing solicitors to augment and support the advice that they provide to their clients or to assist with advocacy.
