Partner, Lane Neave

Fiona specialises in assisting employers with all employment law related advice involving all processes from restructurings to disciplinary matters.  She has built strong relationships within a number of different industries including corporate, tourism and manufacturing.

Fiona has a hands-on style of practise which involves working in a business as opposed to working alongside it.  This is where Fiona’s Human Resources experience comes in.  Fiona often undertakes HR audits and internal investigations and assists with the day to day HR functions of a business.

Although Fiona is based in Auckland she works with clients in all parts of the country.  Fiona regularly presents employment law seminars around New Zealand.
