BA / LLB, Auckland University
Kylie grew up in Tauranga and following the completion of her law degree in 2004, spent her early career working at a leading Auckland firm before returning to the Bay and joining Sharp Tudhope’s Commercial team in 2007.
Kylie specialises in commercial law which includes sales and acquisitions, finance, entity structures, capital raising and a broad range of contractual matters. She often works with clients in the manufacturing, exporting, logistics and horticulture industries, advising on a variety of corporate and commercial matters. In addition, she holds several key governance roles which help make her a well-rounded commercial lawyer.
With a keen interest in business, Kylie enjoys being involved in transactions from start to finish. She works alongside her clients as a business partner, not just a legal adviser. She doesn’t provide advice in a vacuum. Instead, she takes a practical approach and looks at your wider business operation and strategic objectives.
