Gary Davis


I graduated from the University of Canterbury with a BA in Japanese and Spanish and an LLB. I was admitted to the bar in July 2015 and commenced practice as a barrister shortly after.

I specialise in civil and commercial litigation, and am instructed on a wide variety of matters including contract, insolvency, tort, Companies Act, and insurance with a particular emphasis on disputes arising out of the Canterbury earthquakes. I am also a supervised civil legal aid provider.

I regularly appear in the District and High Court, and have acted as both junior and lead/sole counsel in summary judgment hearings, judicial settlement conferences and trials.
