Raine Selles

MSc Cons Law & Arb LLB(Hons) FFAVE(Master) FQSi MCIArb MNZIOB MNZACEI

Raine has been working in the construction industry since the age of 17 and has built a career around the resolution of complex construction disputes internationally. In 2013, she founded CMC Asia Pacific (later, Concordia), and in a short time, have developed it into a professional and well-respected organisation within the region.

She has helped settle more than 800 disputes and has achieved settlements of more than $5bn in New Zealand and Australia.

Her background in quantity surveying and commercial/project management and being qualified in law pays dividends in having construction knowledge that lawyers do not.
