Gary Simpson Partner

Gary is a founding partner of Simpson Western and has been a partner for over 30 years, acting as a trusted advisor to numerous business and personal clients.

Gary specialises in asset protection; he heads up our asset protection team, advising our clients in all aspects of asset protection, including trust formation and administration and trust restructuring.

An enthusiastic advocate of the North Shore, Gary has lived here for all but eight years of his life and has worked in Takapuna for thirty five years.
