Solicitor Simon Gyenge enjoys a legal portfolio as varied as his eclectic mix of hobbies.
With his caring and fresh approach to legal services, Simon works with a wide range of clients, specialising in property (commercial and residential), trusts and estate planning, relationship property and commercial law, including business transactions and commercial leasing.
Wellington-born, Simon spent most of his school years in Tauranga, before completing a conjoint Bachelor of Law and Science at the University of Auckland.
While at university, he was heavily involved as a volunteer of United Nations Youth New Zealand, a civic education charitable organisation run by youth, for youth – and continues his involvement through the United Nations Association of Tauranga.
Simon returned to the Bay in 2015, when he joined Lyon O’Neale Arnold, and prides himself on ensuring clients’ understanding of their affairs is reflected in reality.
With a “mad love” for sport and the outdoors, Simon counts hiking, futsal, skiing, surfing and golf among his recreational activities. Not one to shy away from a challenge, he is also a member of the Tauranga Civic Choir, after his wife convinced him to join.
We were returning expats, and as such this transaction required additional supporting evidence to meet the requirements of New Zealand's anti-money laundering legislation. Caen not only professionally assisted us to navigate our way through the legal requirements, but did so in a manner that was approachable, friendly and very patient. Based on our experience, we have no hesitation in recommending Caen Chapman-Taylor's professional services.
