Doreen Evans


I provide a wide range of legal services to clients throughout Southland and Central Otago.

I strive to help clients with clear, commercially focused advice across all their legal requirements.

I am open, honest and fearless. I am astute and business savvy, and willing and able to think laterally to deliver fresh solutions for businesses.

I aim to be easily accessible, responsive, solutions-focused and deliver value for money.

I will listen to my clients and respond in plain language. I focus on how best to achieve commercial results in a timely and cost-effective manner - this in turn, will add to my clients’ competitive edge in their marketplace.

I am committed to understanding each business, their goals and what success means to them. I will work collaboratively with my client, my wider team and other advisors to achieve shared objectives.

I specialise in providing solutions in the following areas:

• Corporate and commercial including acquisitions, mergers, restructures, start-ups
• Property including residential, commercial, rural and developments
• Franchising and Trademarks
• Insolvency, business recovery, and debt collection
• Trust and asset protection
• Succession planning
• Employment
• Personal Client Services including relationship property, Wills and Powers of Attorney

I am excited by the role I play in the Southland and Central Otago community and believe that this experience and network enables me to better serve the needs of local businesses.

I have been involved in a number of voluntary positions, including on the boards of the Dunedin Kindergarten Association, Southland Law Society, DARE Incorporated and Southern Team Co Limited (both “Sting” and “Steel” netball franchises), Invercargill East Rotary Club and committee member of “Building a Rotary Dream” where a house was built and sold raising approximately $200,000.00 to assist the homeless in Southland.  I am currently a trustee of Koha Kai Charitable Trust, Director of Cromwell Rotary Club and the Rotary Youth Exchange committee for District 9980.

I am currently organising a fundraising project ( where the community will build a house and sell it at auction with all net proceeds of the sale being donated to St John to be used to Rebuild the St John Station House in Cromwell.   If you are interested in supporting this project please give me a call.
