A Woy Woy business has celebrated 60 years of operation. Law firm Tonkin Drysdale Partners celebrated 60 years of trading on the Peninsula in September.
In 1958, Mr Phillip Tonkin founded the legal practice in Woy Woy, then called, PD Tonkin and Co. At that time, television had only been in Australia for two years, and the world was watching as the USA and Russia competed in sending the first man to space. PD Tonkin and Co only had one secretary and Mr Tonkin was the only lawyer. “Currently, Tonkin Drysdale Partners has a team of more than 20 legal staff, and has four partners,” said Tonkin Drysdale partner Mr Darrell Pannowitz.
Despite the large changes over the last six decades, the company has and will remain a supporter of Peninsula community, continuing to mould and change with demands, while still maintaining core values upon which it was founded, he said. “On behalf of the entire team at Tonkin Drysdale Partners, we’d like to give thanks to our loyal clients over the past 60 years,” said Mr Pannowitz. “We are very passionate about looking after our community and are proud to have built lifelong relationships that transcend generations.
“Having worked in the business myself for 30 years, I have seen firsthand the benefit of supporting locals and families, representing people who now have children and grandchildren whom we now support. “We look forward to serving the community into the future with many more years to come,” Mr Pannowitz said. Tonkin Drysdale Partners provides legal services and advice across a wide range of fields, including property conveyancing, litigation, estate planning, intellectual property as well as family, commercial, employment and criminal law.
