“My job’s about making sure everything goes smoothly and ensuring continued success for my clients“

Chris Peddie enjoys the variety that stems from his mix of business and rural clients. “I enjoy the challenges of both commercial and rural law. The two sectors require a wide diversity of knowledge and thought.”

After graduating from Canterbury University in 2001 with a double degree in law and science, Chris was attracted to AWS Legal by its excellent reputation.

He joined the ranks at the Invercargill office and was rewarded for his enthusiasm and hard work with Associate status just three years later. Chris became a Partner in April 2006.

Working predominantly with the Business Team, Chris specialises in conveyancing, financing (including panel solicitor work for banks), establishing companies, commercial documentation, leases and trust work. His skills also see him regularly seconded to the Rural Team.

Chris enjoys interacting with clients and meeting their legal needs.

“My job’s about making sure everything goes smoothly and ensuring continued success for my clients“ he says.

Outside the office, Chris is involved with the Marist Rugby Club, family activities and also enjoys a variety of social occasions.
