Steven Duxfield





As General Manager, Steven is responsible for all the non-legal operations of Corcoran French.  He's not a lawyer, so you won't find him giving you legal advice.


Steven is the partners' right hand man.  Steven's involvement, and that of our Office Manager, Karen, means our partners are free to focus on meeting the needs of our clients, rather than spending time managing the firm. 


Steven started with Corcoran French in 2014, having previously been Practice Manager for a mid sized Auckland law firm for 19 years, followed by nearly three years as a Business Manager for a small Auckland accounting firm.  Steven has also several years' experience providing accounting services to a wide range of clients.  A Chartered Accountant, Steven brings to Corcoran French his financial background and experience, as well as experience in all aspects of law firm management.


In his spare time, Steven likes helping people.  Nine years on school boards (including several as Board Chair) provided a great opportunity to assist schools and their principals, while learning new skills and gaining personal satisfaction.  Steven has also been involved in other charitable organisations and is currently treasurer of two such organisations, managing funds totaling over $10M.
