The present firm of Willis Toomey Robinson is the result of a merger in 1983 of the firms of Robinson Toomey & Partners and Lusk Willis & Co. The firm celebrated its centenary in 1989. The fact of its age has, in itself, built up a firm of extensive experience in all areas of Law. It is worthy of mention that three High Court Judges (Justice Woodhouse, Justice Gallen and Justice Chisholm) and one District Court Judge (Judge B.H.S.Neal) originated from this firm.
Our present structure consists of two Consultants, five Partners, one Associate, five Solicitors, two Legal Executives, a Practice Manager together with thirteen secretarial and support staff.
We are currently members of LANZ - LawAlliance NZ, an association of independent legal practices.
