Senior Legal Counsel - Commercial

Erin Mogford is a Senior Legal Counsel for Source Legal, based in New Zealand, with considerable experience in property development, subdivisions and leasing matters, along with commercial experience in commercial contracts, director obligations and business sales and purchases.

Erin is passionate about collaborating with her clients and assembling the right team to ensure that their commercial objectives and business goals are legally sound. She believes that her clients’ success is her success, and works hard to build long-term relationships with them.

“I’m all about collaboration with my clients. Working closely with my clients, I learn about their businesses, risk appetites and bottom-line positions. This collaboration, together with my adaptable and efficient working style, allows me to then work with them to provide commercially pragmatic advice and solutions tailored to the client.

I also love working on any kind of property development matters as it is an area I have specialised in for a number of years and understand the complicated layers within a property development transaction.  

Recently moving from a traditional law firm, I genuinely believe in the Source model and how this model can provide incredible legal and commercial support for our clients with their BAU legal issues and challenges.”
