Nick is an enrolled Barrister and Solicitor of the High Court of New Zealand and a Director of Schnauer and Co.  Nick is a former police officer but decided not to follow this path in his legal practice.  Nick graduated with a Bachelor of Laws at Auckland University in 2001 and then worked at the firm for three years before venturing into the bright lights of the City, where he worked for some large and medium sized firms. 
Nick subsequently returned to Schnauer and Co in 2009 and became a Director in 2014.

Nick acts for a varied range of property investors and developers and has written and taught in this area also.  He also has experience with commercial and trust matters, which frequently become inter-related with the property work he does.
