Bayley Sprott


Bayley joined GQ in 2023 and is a lawyer in our Litigation Team focusing primarily on resource management, civil litigation and Māori land law.


After kickstarting her career as a Research Assistant and Chief District Court Judge’s Clerk in Wellington, Bayley returned to her roots in the Taranaki region in 2018 and delved into general practice. This saw Bayley in the realms of family law, personal planning, commercial, property and other areas. As part of her general practice role, Bayley most regularly appeared in the Family Court, but she also represented clients in Māori Land Court, District Court, Tenancy Tribunal and Court of Appeal cases.

Bayley has also assisted with matters related to resource consent applications, private plan changes and district plan reviews, drafted submissions on central government legislation and assisted with legislative reform.

In joining our Litigation Team, Bayley shifted her focus to her key areas of interest – resource management and civil disputes. Her broad experience and strong research expertise assists Bayley with easily understanding and advising on different legal issues.
