Thomas & Co Lawyers Ltd is a well established law practice that commenced business in 1966 when the original partner opened what was then only the second law office in New Lynn and just the sixth in West Auckland.

As from 1 April 2017 the practice merged with Titirangi Law Centre established by the Principal Ray Ganda in 1986.

The object of the merger being to continue the proud history of both firms as West Aucklandʼs leading law firms. At the same time this will enable the practice to increase the service offered to our clients. With the merger Ray Ganda joined the existing directors, Don Thomas (Managing Director), Michael Richardson and John Gandy.

We are located in the commercial centre of New Lynn that is the gateway to the green belt West Auckland area that was Waitakere City. Our staff are local residents so know the area and people and are thus able to give specialised practical advice on options available to you.

The practice continues to bring our dedication and experience to all areas of practice as we have since that 1966 start up.
