Jodi Laboyrie โ€“ Director

I have had over 25 years in the legal industry. Having also led a Residential Conveyancing Team in a large legal practice, I have made this my niche area of law for a very long time. This has provided me with valuable knowledge and expertise in this field.

I get the most satisfaction from helping my clients achieve their property goals and it being an enjoyable experience for them โ€“ itโ€™s a passion!

I provide a responsive, friendly and stress-free approach.

Outside of work, I am a big fan of interior design and renovations and have an obsession with house plants.

I love the beach, good wine and enjoying the lifestyle we are lucky to have here in the Bay of Plenty.

Anna Souter โ€“ Senior Legal Executive

I have 22 years experience in law firms in New Zealand and London. I commenced my legal career in Queenstown and moved to Tauranga in 2007.

My passion is assisting clients with their residential transactions. This work encompasses bank lending, Kiwisaver withdrawal applications, Kainga Ora First and Second home grants. I enjoy assisting clients with their succession planning and drafting clients wills to ensure their wishes are achieved.

My wide range of experience allows to look at client transactions from all directions and identify potential issues at the outset which provides for a smooth stress free experience for my clientโ€™s transaction. Throughout my career I have gained a reputation as a trusted conveyancing specialist which enables myself to provide the highest quality of service to our clients in an efficient professional manner.

Outside of work I enjoy boating with my husband and family and following my son Tyler with his passion of sailing. I enjoy catching up with friends and relaxing with a fine glass of vino and a good book.

Jess Carson โ€“ Legal Executive

I have always had a passion for law which saw me complete by Legal Executive Diploma in 2018.

I perform a variety of tasks, providing support to Jodi and Anna while I am developing my knowledge and expertise in all areas of residential conveyancing.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time at the lake with my husband and two young boys, overseas travel (when we can!) and DIY home renovations. I enjoy the rural lifestyle residing in Te Puna, having the best of both worlds with only a short distance to the beach.

I am always here to help!
