Meet the Summit Law Team

Ngaire Smith
Ngaire Smith

Director

I am a graduate of the University of Canterbury (1982) and have been in practice since 1983 in Christchurch with a few years in the UK whilst on my travels.

I have a general practice focusing on residential and commercial conveyancing with a strong emphasis on first-time purchasers, small business, estate administration and estate planning (wills, enduring powers of attorney, family trusts).

I am delighted to combine forces with Naahi to create Summit Law and to continue to provide legal services to our clients in our local area and beyond.

Naahi is now a Director of the newly established Summit Law and specialises in both residential and commercial conveyancing.

As a young practitioner, Naahi has a particular interest in helping first home buyers.
