Welcome Max Shin to Queen City Law

Queen City Law are delighted to welcome a new member to the team, Max Shin.Max Shin Profile Photo

Max joined Queen City Law in 2015 after working at a general law firm in Takapuna, Auckland. His previous legal work was in the property, conveyancing and commercial law spheres.

Commercially astute, Max possesses an excellent knack of being able to quickly grasp complex issues whilst building rapport with people. Before pursuing his legal career, Max worked as a commercial manager of an international electrical cable company at its New Zealand branch. He was involved with intricate contractual disputes and multi-million dollar settlements while also successfully managing tax issues with the IRD and insurance claims with sub-contractors and principals working along-side chartered accountants, lawyers and contractors. Through such “hands on” experience Max is very aware of how clients can feel in stressful situations and the need to put out fires as soon as potential issues are identified whenever possible. His commercial and language skills give him a distinct advantage in his legal practice and will continue to serve QCL well.

Max is passionate about helping children and has successfully organised the ‘Our Children, Our Community’ (OCOC) charitable projects in Auckland and Christchurch with his wife Tina and received the Ernst & Young Excellence Award and Lane Neave Lawyers Leadership Award.
