BARRISTER

After finishing at Hamilton Boys High School, Will completed his studies at the University of Otago in 2018, obtaining a Bachelor of Laws and a Bachelor of Science majoring in Neuroscience.

During the summer holidays, Will worked as a labourer on various orchards in the Waikato and the Bay of Plenty.

Since joining Edwards Law in 2019, Will has assisted with a wide range of issues, including employment agreement reviews, personal grievance claims, jurisdictional considerations, restructuring processes and negotiated exits.

Will has enjoyed assisting both employers and employees to achieve their desired outcomes.

A particular highlight for Will has been assisting employers through the COVID-19 restrictions, and providing prompt and practical guidance through such uncertain times.

Will loves the variety of topics that arise in employment relationships. Each situation is different, and Will is passionate about working with clients to understand their situation and work with them to reach their desired outcomes.

Now based in our Tauranga office, Will is excited to work with employers and employees based in the Bay of Plenty.

Outside of work, Will enjoys tramping in the nearby Kaimai Ranges, or further afield in the Kaweka Forest.

After moving to Tauranga, Will has also picked up surfing and enjoys heading out after work during summer.
