Myriam Mitchell

Myriam has over 11 years’ experience in employment, health and safety and insurance law, and dispute resolution.  She is passionate about getting straight to the issue and gaining an early understanding of a client’s requirements, focusing on achieving the best possible results for her clients.

Acting for employers across a range of industries, Myriam gives strategic, compliance and best practice advice on non-contentious matters as well as providing representation in disputes and prosecutions.  Her significant litigation experience means she has strong advocacy and negotiation skills and has guided many clients to a negotiated settlement where avoiding a hearing is in their best interests.

Myriam holds a law degree (with honours) and a commerce degree (majoring in management and employment relations) from the University of Auckland.

Myriam commenced her career as a research clerk to the 12 Judges of the Manukau District Court and has since worked for a mid-tier award winning firm and one of New Zealand’s leading law firms. She was also the inaugural president of Young Insurance Professionals Inc (2014 to 2017),), a successful networking group that grew from 3 to 1300 members under her guidance.

Myriam is Hawkes Bay based but regularly works in Wellington, and travels throughout New Zealand.
