Tina has updated her profile, Queen City Law thinks Tina has a very bright future in the law.tina_hwanggrey Tina read for and completed her LLB (honours) degree at the University of Auckland , finishing her professional legal studies with IPLS.  Admitted as an Officer of the High Court of New Zealand in March 2010, Tina is a motivated worker, driven to obtain the best results for her clients.

After three years with award winning Boutique law firm, Queen City Law, Tina Hwang has practised mainly in property law (residential, commercial, construction and litigation). This has meant assisting first time home buyers and holding their hand through the seemingly overbearing processes involved or alternatively helping expert property developers and dealers in multiple transactions.  Tina has also been involved with various commercial acquisitions and disputes; construction projects (large and small- including new and recladding) as well as negotiating the tenders and construction contracts; and with mediation and litigation.

Being client-centric, Tina has taken on numerous employment cases (both employer and employee) which have led to mediation and settlements. Tina has attended a number of District Court hearings successfully defending/mitigating a number of criminal charges for some of our clients and has continued to keep pace with the diverse range of expertise a boutique law firm and its clients demand and deserve.

Born in South Korea, and raised in New Zealand, Tina is fully bilingual. Tina loves sports, including hockey, badminton, soccer, and netball, and also has a passion for the beach and innovative art.

Tina is interested in helping the youth community and is active in her local church. She was the President of a charitable organisation promoting the awareness of multicultural identity (Kowiana Association of New Zealand) and was further a committee member of the Korean New Zealand Business Council being mindful of the need to build economic ties between South Korea and New Zealand.

Tina considers communication with clients one of the most fundamental building stones in practicing law and aims to keep her clients informed and aware of the seemingly complicated legal processes involved in legal work. Tina believes her experience as a legal executive often means she can attend to legal matters far more efficiently that a lot of other lawyers and this is of significant benefit to clients.

Tina is thrilled to have joined a firm as dynamic and client-centric as Queen City Law and has quickly broadened her legal experience and been able to add value to the firm’s thriving practice. She has also worked with Consultant Ross Dillon on some interesting contentious matters and is now looking after some litigation based matters directly. < Tina has been intricately involved in remedial work totaling some NZ$30M on a couple of the first major multi unit leaky building settlements and construction and buidability issues associated with these projects. This has necessitated working very closely with Marcus and Tina has, in a very condensed period of time, developed expertise in terms of construction issues associated with highrise remedial works. Tina is also junior counsel in a current significant multi unit claim and is able to exploit her knowledge of property and construction law when dealing with these sorts of claims. Tina is excited about her future in the law and is comfortable working with a range of clients with their legal requirements.
