Established 1953

Palmer Macauley was established in Kaikohe by George Palmer in 1953.

Peter Macauley joined the firm in 1970 and in 1973 George and Peter created an enduring legal partnership. While in many ways ‘chalk and cheese’, the pair covered the community spectrum and the firm became known for a strong culture of community service, something that continues today.

In 1998 George’s son Rick and his family returned to the North after a ten year stint practising as a lawyer in England. Rick became a partner with Peter (with George transitioning to Consultant) ensuring the strong connection between the two families continued.

In 2022 the partnership ceased and Palmer Macauley Limited took over the practice. Rick is sole director and Peter remains with the practice as a Consultant.
