PJ is a commercial and property lawyer who has been a senior legal academic, as well as having previously been engaged in commerce.
PJ’s business law clients include nationwide retail chains, a leading ahu whenua trust, a bank, and the New Zealand’s establishment of the world’s largest real estate franchise.
His clientele includes other lawyers: he is literally “a lawyers’ lawyer”.
He is also ridiculously proud of having been the captain of two New Zealand teams representing our country overseas in incredibly small minority sports. This is almost as absurd as having three times as many letters after his name as are in it.
