Bridget Irving


Bridget’s in-depth knowledge of science and geography makes her a valuable member of our resource management and environmental law team.

With a Bachelor of Science as well as a law degree, she is able to apply her skills to all areas of her work at Gallaway Cook Allan.  She helps a wide range of clients, including assisting farmers with their operations, such as irrigation, effluent and nutrient management. She also works with industrial clients, residential land developers and local authorities.

“With resource management, a lot of the issues we deal with are of a technical nature. Whether it’s discharge of contaminants to water or air, or engineering problems associated with land stability. Those issues appeal to the scientific side of me and I’m able to apply my understanding of those things to the legal problems that come out of resource management,” she says.

Outside of work, Bridget enjoys running, mountain biking and skiing. She’s also a trustee of the Dunedin Tunnels Trails Trust, a member of the Institute of Directors in New Zealand and a founding member of Dunedin Young Professionals.
