Simpson Western Lawyers Opens New Office in Silverdale

Simpson Western Lawyers Opens New Office in Silverdale

North Shore law firm Simpson Western has opened its new office at Silverdale in mid-January, located on the corner of Millwater Parkway and Polarity Rise. Simpson Western now operates from three locations on the North Shore – Takapuna, North Harbour and the new Silverdale office.

Gary Simpson, Simpson Western’s managing partner says, “The expansion of our business north into the Rodney area is a response to the needs of our clients. As Auckland expands northwards, our client base has grown to encompass people who live and work in the Rodney area, and we want to be closer to them.”

The firm’s Silverdale office is headed by business law partner Greg Woodd who has lived in the area for over 20 years. Greg’s children go to school locally and he’s been involved with the Silverdale United Rugby Football & Sports Club for many years. Greg will share his time between Simpson Western’s Silverdale and Takapuna offices.

“Sarah Martin, our associate who also specialises in business law, is now permanently based in our Silverdale office. Having lived in the Warkworth/Matakana area all her life, Sarah says she’s enjoying working closer to home and is looking forward to spending more time in the local community,“ says Mr Simpson.

Also in the Silverdale office is legal executive Teresa Heathcote; Teresa’s specialty is property law and she has a particular expertise in property sales and purchases, in subdivisions and bank refinancing. She has been joined by Barbara Wilkins, the Silverdale team’s PA and Clare Brown who provides office support.

“The expansion of our firm into Silverdale is a positive move for Simpson Western and also for our clients. Not only does it mean that we’re closer to our Rodney clients, but also by having our office in Silverdale it gives us more opportunity to cement a relationship with the people and business in the area,” says Mr Simpson.

Simpson Western is the North Shore’s largest law firm. Established almost 30 years ago by Gary Simpson and Chris Western, the firm specialises in business and property law, asset protection and trusts, dispute resolution and litigation, employment, relationship property, immigration and lifestyle planning for seniors. The firm operates from three locations: Takapuna, North Harbour and now Silverdale.
