Welcome to our site!

Shanahans is a general practice law firm which has been serving West Auckland and New Zealand since 1956 and is New Lynn’s first law firm.

Being a part of the New Lynn community for over 60 years, we have partnered with our clients through some of their biggest moments. We have assisted families from purchasing their first home right through to paying off their mortgage and all the things in between. We are now assisting the great and great great grandchildren of some of our original clients.

Details are important in every area of law and we have found that having longstanding relationships with our clients is a more effective way of realising their legal needs. Having a lawyer who acknowledges and is aware of your values, your family situation and your goals is vital to ensuring your future
