Michelle Needham

Michelle has particular experience in both the commercial and property areas of law.  Since graduating with a Bachelor of Law (Hons) in 2009 and a Master of Laws (First Class Hons) in 2013 she has worked for firms in Auckland and the Waikato.  She has enjoyed working alongside a wide variety of commercial clients from owner-operators to large corporates.  She has assisted with re-financing projects, business sales and purchases, leases, and commercial property sales and purchases.  She also enjoys helping people buy and sell their homes.  She respects that a house can be the largest financial asset and works with families to ensure their asset is protected whether it is through a trust or estate planning.  Michelle grew up on a beef and sheep farm which has given her particular affinity to rural industry.

Michelle embraces the Pitt & Moore style of being approachable, down-to-earth and open with colleagues and clients.  Keeping her feet on the ground is not always easy for Michelle who has a passion for flying. She has a commercial pilots licence and is a flying instructor at Nelson Aero Club in her spare time.

Favourite tip about the region

Michelle will always head skywards when she has the chance and one of her favourite places to view our region is in a Cessna 172 above the Abel Tasman in winter. "When you're showing friends the view from above Awaroa or Separation Point and there's snow on the mountains on one side and the sparkling sea and coastline on the other it's hard to beat."
