Jeremy was admitted to the Bar in May 1998 and after gaining valuable experience with the firm, he left New Zealand to travel overseas in December that year, firstly to the USA and then to the UK. He lived in London for over four years and worked as a paralegal doing mainly litigation support, before travelling through Europe and returning to New Zealand in December 2003.
Jeremy recommenced working with Saunders & Co in January 2004, became a Partner in July 2008 and now runs our Hornby office, which focuses on looking after clients in southern Christchurch and growing surrounding towns such as Rolleston, West Melton, Lincoln, Prebbleton and Leeston
He enjoys the general nature of working in a suburban office, which gives him the opportunity to utilise a variety of skills and assist a wide range of clients.
Jeremy practises in commercial and company law, property law, trust law, wills, powers of attorney and estate planning, with a particular focus on leasing, sale and purchase of businesses, subdivisions, and all property transactions.
Jeremy hopes clients find him pleasant to deal with and appreciate his methodical, considered and well-organised approach to their work.
He likes to think he is pragmatic and a good communicator, keeping clients well informed throughout the process and helping them to work through any complex issues, which can sometimes arise.
A lot of Jeremy’s time outside the office is taken up with his young family, but when he does find time he enjoys following sports (particularly golf, cricket and football) music, reading, travelling and learning Italian.

What Jeremy’s clients say:
“We have been clients of Jeremy Bull since 2007. Jeremy impresses us with his attention to detail. We were recently in the process of buying a house and at the point, we thought, of putting pen to paper. However, Jeremy’s research found inconsistencies between the plans and what we had been told by other parties involved in the negotiation. Jeremy was proactive, very clear in his communications, and quick to advise on how to handle the situation. The issue was quickly resolved and without stress to us. We are happy to recommend Jeremy as a thorough, professional, personable and very capable lawyer.”

“Jeremy has looked after our legal affairs over a number of years. Not only has he steered us through multiple home buying and selling transactions, but has also been invaluable in assisting us with the many and varied issues that we have seen in our business. These include lease agreements, employment agreements or contracts, and even trade marking our business logo for future protection. I remember one time in particular when he was extremely proactive where we had an employee issue. He rang me multiple times throughout the situation to discuss options as he thought of any new angles that we hadn’t already considered. This demonstrated to me that he really cared and was willing to go the extra mile. Every time I deal with Jeremy he is extremely helpful. He makes all the legal things that I encounter easy to deal with, and he has done a great job for me to date. The staff at Hornby Law are always friendly and helpful, and a pleasure to deal with. I am happy to recommend Jeremy and Hornby Law to other friends and business associates.”
