The wider Kerikeri region is now the fastest-growing area in Northland and offers an attractive lifestyle, diverse population and varied business opportunities.

Sarah Jury, Director/Lawyer

 

Sarah uses simple, practical and innovative solutions to obtain the best outcome for her clients while remaining calm, approachable and friendly. Sarah specialises in relationship property, estates and trusts within the firm, but also provides advice in other areas including conveyancing, subdivisions and employment.

Sarah has been with McLeods since 2004 and is well settled in a ramshackle property in Oromahoe with her husband and young daughter.

Sarah has been well known for her shoe obsession, clothes that are “slightly too extravagant” for any situation and the huge quantity of reading she does outside work. She also enthusiastically participates in her family’s penchant for dressing up: her husband Mike is part of a Viking Living History group and Sarah belly dances with her mother and sister.

Katharine Taurau, Lawyer and Mediator

 

Katharine is experienced in working with clients across a broad range of matters and is focused on providing clients with timely information to achieve the right solution when legal issues arise.

As well as a lawyer (and also known as “Kath”), Kath is a mediator and sees great value in parties resolving disputes themselves, where possible. Kath is experienced in dealing with issues involving Maori land, employment matters and conveyancing and commercial matters. Her background in dealing with matters before the Waitangi Tribunal and in environmental law are additional areas of experience she brings to the firm.

Kath, her husband and two teenage children live in Kerikeri and enjoy fishing and boating and all that the Northland lifestyle and climate have to offer.

Sarah Wynyard-Davis, Lawyer

 

Sarah has experience in a range of Family Law matters.  She likes to focus on supporting parties to reach a resolution to their family matters by consent, but if this is not possible she has appeared in the Family Court many times and is experienced in resolving matters in this forum also.

Sarah has hands on experience in the dairy industry as both an employer and a partner in 50/50 Share milking arrangements.  She understands the issues that may arise in the industry and within farm working relationships and is able to offer advice in these areas.   

Admitted to the bar in 2003, Sarah is a Northland local and worked at other local firms in Kerikeri before taking some time out of the profession to raise her family.  Sarah returned to practice here at Mcleods Lawyers in August 2017.
