The Welsh McCarthy Lawyers Team

Janice Forsyth - Director

Janice Forsyth Welsh McCarthy PartnerJanice was born and raised in Eastern Taranaki and spent her early working years on her parent’s sheep and beef farm, before heading to the Wellington to complete her law degree.

Working on the farm gave her a work ethic, taught her how to cope with stress, time management and other valuable life skills which she requires in the legal environment.

She started her legal career in New Plymouth at a firm that was then called Reeves Middleton Young, before she met her partner and moved to South Taranaki in 2011. She worked her way up to a partner of Welsh McCarthy in 2014 until the partnership dissolved in January 2021.

Janice took the up the challenge of starting a fresh new law firm in Hawera called Welsh McCarthy Limited, which continues to service the established client base of Welsh McCarthy.

Janice is a highly knowledgeable, dedicated, and easy-going lawyer. She is experienced in farming, residential, and commercial sale and purchase agreements, retirement village work, estates, trust work, leases and wills and enduring powers of attorney.

In her downtime she enjoys spending time with her partner and two children, mowing the lawns and before Covid-19 appeared, traveling the globe.
