Highly regarded for the clarity and sense she brings to a case, and for her understanding of a courtroom, Julie is an important member of K3’s advocacy team. Julie plays a strong role in complex litigation in the senior courts, especially cases involving fraud, complex recoveries and other scenarios involving invasive remedies. Many of her cases involve international cross border issues. Julie has undertaken a large amount of trial and hearing work in the lower courts as lead and has appeared as counsel on several High Court jury trials. Consistent with K3’s ethos that advocates should make their skills a specialty, rather than specialise in the subject matter, the cases that Julie handles cover a range of civil, criminal and family work. Julie is often instructed by other practitioners to handle cases and is often in demand from the criminal bar on important cases. Julie was a member of the Auckland District Law Society criminal law committee, is certified as a category 4 criminal legal aid provider and speaks fluent Mandarin.
