ABOUT  |  Sharon Greig ~ Law Graduate/ Researcher

Local

Although Sharon is imported from the Hawkes Bay, she’s been here so long, she reckons she is nearly a local.

Sharon’s first experience of Northland was visiting her boyfriend’s mum at Tapuaetahi for Christmas in 1994. Unsurprisingly, she proceeded to fall in love – both with the husband-to-be and the Far North. She moved here 19 years ago.

In those 19 years, she has immersed herself in the Far North lifestyle. She learnt to surf, tie fishing knots, skipper a boat, put down a hangi, play the guitar and has to her own surprise become an obsessive-compulsive gardener.  She has experience in employment law, mediation, local government law, construction contracts and environmental law.

Sharon considers the cultural diversity of our community as a good thing and loves meeting people from Northlands varied walks of life, which is a handy attribute for a lawyer.

Sharon Greig, Lawyer and Researcher

Experienced

Prior to qualifying in law, Sharon developed a wealth of life and work experience in hospitality, business, project management, events and marketing.

Six years ago, Sharon decided to pursue a law degree with the aim of becoming a lawyer & barrister. She continued to work full-time whilst commuting to Hamilton as a full-time law student – yes, she is a little crazy, but her perseverance evidences her never-say-die attitude which she applies to her client’s legal issues.

Now she is qualified and has a strong interest in resource management, environmental law, employment law, Maori land law, and intellectual property law, all of which sync perfectly in her role of supporting Kerikeri lawyer Jo Baguley and the range Atlas Legal provides to their clients.

Approachable

Outside of work, like most of us, Sharon loves to spend time outdoors in the Bay of Islands and the Far North.   Sharon is super versatile, an excellent communicator and listener. She also makes a mean paella, is a self-confessed book addict and beach-lover.
