Andrea Lane

Solicitor LLB, BMI

Andrea joined Claro in February 2018. Prior to practising law, Andrea worked as a radiographer in both public and private practice across New Zealand and Australia, so combining her heath sector background with her legal career was a natural step. During her undergraduate studies at the University of Canterbury, Andrea obtained top marks in the medical law paper and always aspired to practise in the health sector.

Andrea began her legal career in the commercial team at Anderson Lloyd, where she advised on a broad range of commercial matters, including residential and commercial property transactions, company, banking and securities law.

Andrea continues to pursue her interest in health law and is currently working towards an LLM in Medical Law and Ethics from the University of Edinburgh.

Based in Christchurch, Andrea says of working in health, “There’s no doubt the health sector encompasses issues that affect us all, whether as practitioners or consumers. It’s vitally important to ‘get things right’ for everyone involved and I’m really proud to be a part of that.”
