Phil started as a lawyer in 1977 and has been involved in commercial leasing ever since.

He acts for a number of large organisations on their acquisition, development and operation of large retail shopping centres.

His key strengths are his ability to negotiate effectively with major tenants and bringing a pragmatic and commercial focus to complex leasing transactions and multifaceted design build arrangements.  His approach is very relaxed and friendly, and he doesn’t stand on ceremony.

Phil has built up a substantial knowledge of the workings of a number of major New Zealand and Australian entities over the years and because he has been part of their team for many years they have the added benefit of his institutional knowledge despite turnover in personnel.
