Jenna Riddle


A Southerner at heart, Jenna has returned to Dunedin after practicing law in Auckland and Queenstown to join Gallaway Cook Allan’s Dispute Resolution team.

She has gained a broad range of litigation experience across a variety of fields, including: general commercial litigation, insurance, employment, health and safety, transport, regulatory and criminal and construction. While courtroom advocacy is a really enjoyable aspect of Jenna’s role, she also assists clients with resolving litigation through alternative dispute resolution.

Jenna enjoys breaking down the difficult and often confusing process of litigation for clients and helping them make informed decisions based on practical legal advice. “Whether a key business decision, or a personal matter, listening and really understanding what is important to a client gives me the opportunity to anticipate the trajectory of litigation and move things towards a swift resolution. Being an advocate is a privileged and humbling position and I am fortunate to help people during some of the most difficult times in their lives.”

Out of the office, Jenna enjoys travelling, the great outdoors and spending time with her family.
