Cathy Punter Registered Legal Executive
I get a real buzz from helping our clients realise their dreams.
I discovered a love of the law while working in a support role in law firms in Adelaide. With my husband and young family we returned to New Zealand in 2003 and in 2010 while working for a law firm in Rotorua, I graduated as the top Bay of Plenty Legal Executive graduate.
Joining the team at Cargill Stent Clarke Law in April 2015, I currently practice in the areas of property law, estate planning, wills, powers of attorney and deceased estates. Providing quality service for the firms conveyancing clients is both challenging and rewarding as often these clients are undertaking the most important financial transaction of their lifetime.
I am an associate member of NZILE and have served on the committee for the Bay of Plenty/Gisborne Branch for five years. I am currently Vice President and have really enjoyed as part of this role, meeting new members and spending time encouraging and supporting others in undertaking the Diploma and practising as Legal Executives.
In addition, I enjoy arranging seminars and social events for the NZILE members in our local area. It is great to bring the network together to co-share ideas, changes in legislation and to build strong business relationships and good friendships.
I have many interests and enjoy supporting, encouraging and spending time with my family with all their interests and various pursuits. I crew for my Dad with his yacht racing and I am also a fully qualified skipper and an active crew member for Coastguard.
