Kaitlin was admitted in June 2023 and works in our dispute resolution team as a solicitor focusing on civil litigation and employment law.

Starting with Cavell Leitch in 2016 as an administration assistant, Kaitlin has since filled many roles within the firm. These skills have provided her with a great foundation for her career as a lawyer and make her a real asset to our team. Most recently, she has developed an interest in dispute resolution work.  She finds real value in putting her legal knowledge into practice and enjoys working closely with our lawyers and clients. 

Since commencing her work in Dispute Resolution, Kaitlin has been involved in a variety of civil litigation matters, including construction disputes, insurance matters, debt recovery and commercial disputes. She also assists our employment team in relation to grievances, restructures and general employment queries.

A highlight for Kaitlin is being able to learn from some of the best legal minds in Christchurch, as well as gain exposure to a broad range of legal work. She is thoroughly enjoying developing relationships with clients and working towards resolving any issues they may be facing.
