The name is probably derived from Lough which is the Irish form of loch and pronounced ‘Locklin’. The change from Maguire to McGuire took place in New Zealand on arrival because the name was wrongly recorded by a clerk in a government recording office. Over the past 190 years the name Loughlin or Laughlin has been kept alive by:
- Patrick Loughlin born 1797
- Laughlin Patrick born 1837
- Patrick Laughlin born 1920
- Patrick Loughlin born 1953
Patrick Loughlin McGuire started practising law in 1988. In 1992 he established his own practice which was very successful. Since those times the firm has undergone mergers and restructuring in accordance with the Lawyers and Conveyancers Act 2006.
Our team consists of a principal, a senior consultant and other support staff. Our exceptional results could not be achieved without our committed and dedicated staff at all levels. Most of our staff have been with us for many years. It is as a result of this strong sense of team spirit that we can assure clients that their instructions will be carried out professionally and efficiently.
Our team members speak all Chinese dialects and the Russian language. Staff training remains high on our priorities and our team is constantly furthering their legal education.
