Lotta De Smet Solicitor

Lotta started with us as a summer clerk in 2016, and returned as a graduate in March 2017. She was admitted to the Bar in November 2017, and works as a solicitor alongside Candice Murphy, Ashleigh Bennett and Jess Shaw in the relationship property and employment team.

After gaining her qualifications at Auckland University, Lotta is currently completing her professionals, and will be admitted to the Bar in late 2017.

On weekends, she spends time with her family on the Hibiscus Coast and always makes time for boating, the beaches and a spot of surfing with her dad. She enjoys travelling and recently returned from Denmark, where she completed her law degree. Lotta is looking forward to finding the best coffee in Takapuna and meeting new people.


“After summer clerking at Simpson Western, I knew that the firm was the right fit for me. Simpson Western fosters an environment for fresh new ideas and a collaborative approach to solving our clients' legal issues. I feel incredibly lucky to work next to the beach, using the latest technology, and helping the team to achieve the best outcome for all our clients.”
