Welcome to the Team

Commentary

Grimshaw & Co are pleased to welcome three new members of staff to the team: Sabrina, Oliver, and Connor.

Sabrina Liu: Law Graduate

Sabrina joins us from the University of Auckland, where she is about to graduate in Law, having previously completed a Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Psychology. She also holds a Bachelor of Business from AUT. Prior to joining Grimshaw & Co, Sabrina spent nearly a decade working in marketing for leading global brands in both Shanghai and New Zealand. She has lived in New Zealand for about 15 years but grew up in China and is fluent in Mandarin. In her spare time, she enjoys yoga, reading and spending time with her family.

Oliver Harding: Law Graduate

A Wellingtonian, Oliver has moved to Auckland after spending the past five years at the University of Otago, where he completed a degree in Law and Arts (History and Politics). His interest in tort and evidence law attracted him to the idea of working in litigation and he is excited by the prospect of representing homeowners and body corporates. Outside of work, Oliver enjoys watching sport and playing it socially. His interests include skiing, music and travel and he is looking forward to exploring his new city and region.

Connor McKenzie: Summer Clerk

Connor is from Auckland originally but currently studies at the University of Canterbury, where he is in his second year of working towards a degree in Law and Criminal Justice. He joins Grimshaw & Co for the summer months and is looking forward to being exposed to the different facets of the law and experiencing the law in practice. Connor plays cricket and football and enjoys surfing in the summer and snowboarding in the winter, as well as spending time with friends and family.

Buddy System

With lots of new faces, names, and systems to learn, starting a new job can easily feel overwhelming. This is often heightened for graduates who join us fresh from University with little to no prior full-time work experience. To assist with the transition into a new role, we allocate a workplace buddy to all new team members. Sabrina, Oliver, and Connor have all been paired with an existing member of the team who can help to provide invaluable guidance and support during the first six months in a new environment. We have found that lasting relationships are often formed through the buddy system, the benefits of which are noticed well past the initial six months.  

If you have any questions or are interested in getting to know our newest team members a little bit better, please reach out to them directly through their contact details listed below.
