Determined to do the best job for his clients, Brad works tirelessly to ensure best outcomes are achieved.


Brad joined the firm in the year 2000, and in 2008 he became the youngest Partner in Godfreys Law’s 150 year history. One of the reasons Brad has spent over two decades with Godfreys Law is because of the close-knit team environment that looks after everyone.


Brad takes a holistic approach to his work and endeavours to give an all-encompassing view from the perspective of all parties involved in a matter. This approach enables Brad to look for resolutions to problems rather than immediately taking an adversarial approach to issues.


This approach works particularly well in Brad's niche area of employment law but equally in all areas of Brad's practice which include commercial, property, and asset protection.


Brad is passionate about volunteering within the Canterbury community and legal profession. In addition to mentoring the Godfreys Law team and looking after their wellbeing, Brad also:

Always open to new marketing ideas, Brad is the face of Godfreys Law on the Sumner Surf Camera website. He also hosts the Real Solutions Business Podcast, and enjoys talking to other professionals and business owners about their secrets for success.


Outside of work Brad can normally be found working in the garden, mountain biking around the Port Hills, walking his dogs, surfing or contemplating his love of the pinot noir grape.
