Working across Ford Sumner’s specialist areas, Nina provides expert advice in commercial contracts, dispute resolution, medico-legal and employment law, which has given her a wide perspective on many legal matters.

Nina graduated from Victoria University of Wellington in 2016, with a BA in Media Studies and Criminology in addition to her law degree. She was admitted to the Bar in 2017, and worked as in-house counsel before joining Ford Sumner in early 2019.  

Having been born in Austria, Nina is bilingual, and moved to the Hawkes Bay at the age of 14. She loves spending her spare time doing HIIT, and exploring Wellington and its coastline.
