Company Profile - Henderson Reeves Connell Rishworth Lawyers

Company Profile

With a history dating back over 30 years, Henderson Reeves Connell Rishworth is a well-recognised and trusted firm of Whangarei lawyers.

Since its establishment in the early 1970s, Henderson Reeves Connell Rishworth and its partners have actively contributed to the Whangarei community, including strong support for local business and the arts.

Stuart Henderson joined the firm in 1979, followed by Ian Reeves in 1981. Under their leadership, the firm enjoyed successful growth, leading to a shift in 1992 from offices in Mansfield Terrace to larger premises on the top floor of the State Insurance building. At the same time, the firm acquired the practice of Peter Mahood.

Building on a strong reputation and excellent service, the firm once again expanded in 2002, with the acquisition of the Connell Rishworth practice, together with Peter Lynch and Max Atkins, and was renamed Henderson Reeves Connell Rishworth. This expansion saw the firm taking over a further two floors of the now ‘Henderson Reeves’ building.

Thomas Biss joined Stuart and Ian as a Director in 2008, followed by Jeremy Browne in 2012.  In 2015 Jamie Bourke became the Firm’s first female Director.

Today, Henderson Reeves Connell Rishworth continues to provide quality legal advice to Northlanders and remains proud of its heritage and involvement in the local community.
