Ellie joined Govett Quilliam in June 2022, when she moved to Taranaki from Wellington. She works in our Family and Litigation Teams.
Ellie has a particular interest and expertise in all areas of health law including ACC processes, complaints and investigations, civil claims, professional disciplinary processes, and privacy matters. She has worked from almost all angles in this space – including for patients, practitioners, regulators, and insurers. Her broad experience provides a holistic and practical approach to health care matters.
She has extensive and broad litigation experience, appearing in a range of jurisdictions from Tribunal level to the Court of Appeal. She also works within our Family Team, providing advice and expertise on relationship property matters.
A recent escapee from Wellington, Ellie enjoys spending time exploring the Taranaki region – and always welcomes suggestions of what she should try out next. She maintains her fitness by running around after her two young boys, and goofy Labrador. She loves a coffee whenever time allows, and has been enjoying New Plymouth’s excellent cafes.
She is passionate about supporting Mums and whanau, and is a Board Trustee for the Little Miracles Trust (formally the Neonatal Trust).
