Hesketh Henry celebrates 150 years with their clients.

Hesketh Henry clients, friends and staff celebrated the firm’s 150th anniversary at the magnificent historic Pah Homestead in Auckland in September.  Managing partner Erich Bachmann entertained the 170 attendees, thanking clients for their support over the years.  He reminded them that when the firm started in 1865, the population of Auckland was only 12,000, the American civil war was still raging and Abraham Lincoln was assassinated!

A couple of distinguished retired partners shared their history and recollections of the firm. First was the Rt Hon Sir John Henry, a former Justice of the New Zealand Court of Appeal and member of the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council in London whose father, Sir Trevor Henry, was a founding partner of Wilson Henry in 1924. Sir John was followed by Murray Ward, a former partner of Hesketh and Richmond.  Both gentlemen entertained the audience with stories from the past and wished the firm well for the next 150 years.
