Sophie is one of TODD & WALKER Law's Senior Solicitors in the Firm’s Wanaka office. Sophie operates across property, commercial, employment, contractual relationship property and resource management law.
Sophie began her career in litigation at a top tier Auckland firm before moving to Wanaka to work at a general practice firm. Impressed by the forward-looking nature of TODD & WALKER Law Sophie made the move to join the Wanaka team.
Sophie’s valuable experience in litigation means she always plans for the worst and takes a risk minimisation approach to all matters. She enjoys tackling complicated files, particularly when assisting clients who’ve found themselves in a tricky situation that isn’t their fault. She works hard to get positive results and forms trusting relationships with individuals and the community.
Before studying law, Sophie was a white-water rafting guide, undertaking multi-day guiding expeditions on grade five rivers around the world. She’s travelled and guided in Turkey, Morocco, Zambia and beyond, and still has a passion for travel and adventure. Sophie is now settled in the Lake Hawea area where she enjoys mountain biking, skiing and yoga.
Sophie says she prides herself on “doing a really excellent job, and coming up with well-considered future proofed solutions for clients.”
