Brendan Wall – Partner
I have been working in Law since November 1987. I studied at Otago University, and then worked in Invercargill before moving to Rotorua in 1992 where I have remained. I was born in Rotorua and believe this is a fantastic city in which to live. I am married to Katherine and have three children. My principal areas of practice are property, trusts, estate planning and relationship property, business and company work as well as subdivision work. I have also worked in the Family and Civil courts in the past.

Ben Sandford - Solicitor
I grew up in Rotorua and then studied at Victoria University. After being admitted to the bar in 2002 I moved overseas and started representing NZ in Skeleton racing. I competed in three Winter Olympics before retiring in 2014. In 2014 I was elected as the Vice President of legal affairs of the International Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation and I’m also currently a member of the WADA Athlete Committee and the NZOC Athlete Commission. I’ve just finished a LLM in International Sports Law through ISDE in Spain. I moved back to Rotorua in 2016 and started practising law here. I love being back in Rotorua, being involved in the community and enjoying the wonderful lifestyle that Rotorua provides.
