Simon Peirce


Simon is an Associate in our Resource Management team and deals with a wide range of planning, environment, regulatory and compliance issues for his clients.

Simon's clients range from developers with project aspirations, neighbours with concerns about developers aspirations, large scale poultry farms and electricity distribution providers. He says "The best part of what I do is working with such a broad client base and the overcoming their unique issues or achieving their desired outcomes"

His experience includes providing advice on: development rights, projects requiring resource consent or rezoning via plan change, regulatory and compliance issues, disputes between neighbours related to developments affecting their properties, as well as all matters of regulation and compliance for electricity distribution businesses. In all respects, there is a large degree of problem solving, pragmatism and working with the client hands on.

In representing his clients, Simon has appeared in several District and Regional Plan Change hearings on resource consents and plan changes, as well as representing clients at Environment Court and High Court proceedings.

Simon is a member of Te Rōpū Kaitiaki | Sustainability and Community Group, a staff-led group at Gallaway Cook Allan that is focussed on working towards a firm that is accountable for its environmental impact and is embedded in and contributes to the community.
