Building and construction disputes

Commercial Property

Commercial contracts and business law

Ron is a solicitor specialising in construction, commercial property, and general commercial advice. He works closely with Geoff Hardy and his team.


Ron provides expert advice for property owners, contractors, builders, subcontractors and consultants on non-dispute matters such as:

  • construction contracts
  • statutory obligations
  • risk assessment

In the event of a dispute, Ron can also advise the client's legal position and assist with navigating through the various dispute-resolution channels.

Ron is uniquely experienced in high value vertical construction projects due to having previously worked in the construction industry for WorkSafe New Zealand, the Hawkins Group and South Base Construction. Ron therefore possesses strong technical knowledge and is well placed to offer unique insights and offer expert advice on various stages of the project delivery.

Commercial Property

Ron has extensive experience advising both landlords and tenants on commercial leases. Ron helped his clients navigate the COVID lockdown period by negotiating solutions, and when necessary, advising on enforcement action. Ron has also negotiated and drafted high value commercial leases and bespoke construction direct-to-lease agreements.

Commercial General

Ron's other practice area is general commercial advice. Ron has advised on commercial transactions including:

  • due diligence investigations
  • lease positions
  • corporate refinancing
  • security agreements
  • shareholder agreements

Ron prides himself on offering commercially astute advice which is pragmatic and sensible.
