I have worked on many amendments to the Resource Management Act 1991 (eg the 2004 aquaculture law reforms) and on the early oceans policy. My most recent public sector role was as a legislative drafter with the Parliamentary Counsel Office where I drafted the Environmental Protection Authority Act 2011 and the Exclusive Economic Zone and Continental Shelf (Environmental Effects) Act 2012. I have a continuing interest in New Zealand public law.
I have had a nearly 30 year career as a lawyer in the public sector (the Treasury, the Office of the Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment, the Ministry for the Environment, and the Parliamentary Counsel Office).
