Gaze Burt is pleased to welcome Julia Leung, Senior Associate, to our commercial and property team. Julia comes to us as a very experienced practitioner, having more than ten years’ experience across various reputable mid sized Auckland law firms. She specialises in commercial, property (both commercial and residential), banking and finance, trust and estate law.
Julia was led to the law by her appreciation of people and desire to share in their lives, face their challenges alongside them, and assist with solving their problems. She appreciates the exposure to various perspectives and industries her practice gives her that she might not otherwise have. Julia was very pleased to have the opportunity to join the Gaze Burt family, having been aware of the firm, its Christian heritage and professional reputation for some time.
“I am determined to continue building strong relationships with clients by providing them with objective legal advice that will serve their best interests and commercial and personal needs. To me, being a lawyer is not just a profession and a career, but also a way to meet and help people, and an avenue to share in others’ lives.”
Julia graduated from the University of Auckland with a conjoint BCom (Accounting)/LLB. She is a member of the New Zealand Law Society, the Auckland District Law Society, and the Property Law Section, and is admitted as a Barrister and Solicitor of the High Court of New Zealand and the Supreme Court of New South Wales, Australia. When not working hard to assist her clients, Julia loves travelling, musical, opera, and movies. She does not play any sports regularly, but welcomes the opportunity to participate as an occasional team member.
Welcome to the team, Julia!
