Top Queenstown lawyers open new firm, Lloyd Troon Law, in resort


Two of Queenstown’s most prominent and long-standing lawyers have joined forces to create a new boutique law firm in the resort.

Husband-and-wife duo John Troon and Dale Lloyd opened their new practice, Lloyd Troon Law, yesterday.

Both have been practising in Queenstown for almost 30 years each. It’s not the first time the pair have worked together – both Lloyd and Troon were partners at well-known firm Mactodd before Lloyd branched out on her own to set up Dale Lloyd Law in April 2013.

Lloyd, who has been practising for 25 years and is an experienced civil and criminal litigator and family law specialist, took the initial step to create Dale Lloyd Law because she wanted to take a different, fresh approach to law.

“Law is very-much a process-driven profession. I am committed to being responsive to what people need, regardless of their situation. People don’t have to be sitting in the office talking to us – we often deal with clients over the phone or on Skype, without having even met them. I aim to simplify the processes and make people feel comfortable about making the right decision,” Lloyd says.

Troon, who has been practicing for 41 years – 28 of which have been in Queenstown – is a commercial and property law expert who also specialises in trusts, estates and asset planning. His skills complement the growing demand for specialist legal services that Lloyd was experiencing at Dale Lloyd Law.

“As lawyers, we draw on a wide range of skills that are honed on a daily basis and we apply these to the needs of the client. For me it’s about having a successful focus and a more direct influence on the practice and the outcomes,” Troon explains.

Lloyd adds: “We work extremely well together and are passionate about what we do. Our complementary skills are applied in a simplified, cost-effective environment where service is paramount.”

Lloyd Troon Law officially began practicing yesterday at its St Peters Close, Earl Street premises. It is the same offices that Lloyd used for Dale Lloyd Law.

Lloyd and Troon are joined by practice manager and legal executive Sarah Swale and personal assistant Keri Chisholm. The team has long connections with each other –Swale’s first job was with Troon, as was Chisholm’s with Lloyd.
