Our History

Saunders Robinson Brown’s origins date back to 1998, when Geoff Saunders established his own sole practice as Geoff Saunders Business & Property Law.  Geoff had previously practised for 23 years in his family firm, which commenced in 1923.

Geoff’s sole practice grew dramatically in a short period of time.  Lee Robinson joined Geoff in 2001 to consolidate the firm's legal practice into a new entity called Saunders Robinson.  Lee’s strong general and commercial practice, as well as his interest in sports law, was a natural fit with Geoff’s established practice.

Saunders Robinson grew significantly again in October 2007.  The firm merged with William Brown Law in Rangiora to form Saunders Robinson Brown.  The firm now operates from both centres.

Saunders Robinson Brown has gone from strength to strength in the past 10 years.  The core philosophy of the firm has remained unchanged even though the firm has experienced exceptional growth since 1998.  People are at the heart of the business, and the firm works hard to develop and strengthen client relationships.  A cornerstone of the practice is the provision of efficient personal service and advice tailored to each client’s needs.
