Chris has been instrumental in the growth and development of Armstrong Murray, now one of Auckland’s most respected law firms.

He specialises in commercial law and has a deep understanding of business structures, asset protection and trading trusts. Many of his commercial clients seek his advice on all aspects of their affairs, from family estate planning to residential conveyancing and other personal matters.

Chris plays a significant part in the hiring and mentoring of new legal talent. He ensures that Armstrong Murray’s legal team is comprised of lawyers who share the firm’s values, emphasising that ‘it’s about the person, not where they trained.’
