Our History

The firm was founded in 1981 with Stewart Thomson being one of the original partners.  A subsequent merger in 1982 with Charles Haskett QC and Mitchell Wolfe helped the firm establish history dating back to 1938 when Mr. Haskett started practicing.  Mr. Haskett retired in 1990.  Tom Delorey joined the firm in 1984 as an associate and became a partner in 1987.  Richard Mahoney joined the firm in 1992 as a partner and brought along with him, Andrew Robinson as an associate.  Robert Haas joined us as an associate lawyer in 1993 and Andrew and Robert became partners in 2016.  


Stewart, Andrew and Robert, formed the current partnership on January 1st, 2016 as Richard Mahoney retired as a partner on December 31st, 2015 and Tom Delorey became a part time associate lawyer. Tom then retired on December 31st, 2016.
