Ashley-Jayne (AJ) joined Anderson Lloyd in 2021 with over 10 years’ experience as a lawyer, and most recently a partner in another Christchurch firm. AJ has a Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Science (majoring in psychology) from the University of Otago.

Alongside John Farrow, AJ leads our national employment team, providing practical, pragmatic solutions to often complex workplace issues.

AJ represents clients at mediation, in the Employment Relations Authority, Employment Court, High Court, and the human rights and privacy institutions. She provides advice to boards on governance matters, organisational change management, and complex settlements. AJ also acts for employer insurers.

AJ is a committee member of the New Zealand Law Society Employment Law Committee, and the New Zealand Law Society Canterbury and Westland Employment Law Committee. She regularly presents at regional and national employment law conferences, and has thought leadership pieces published both locally and globally.

AJ, John, and their team can assist employers, employees, and HR professionals with all workplace law matters, including day to day management of employees, restructures and redundancies, employee claims, advising on and providing representation in human rights matters, privacy, workplace health and safety, and employment agreements and policies.

Although Christchurch based, AJ travels to Auckland and Queenstown regularly and represents clients from New Zealand and across the globe.
