The two partners are Tony Vlatkovich, who was in practice in a central Auckland law firm and Nola McGowan, who was in sole practice in Whangaparaoa. They merged into one practice in 1990. They are a family practice: husband and wife team Tony and Nola.
The partners of Vlatkovich and McGowan take a real interest in their clients. Their goal is to provide legal advice to clients whilst at all times acknowledging the client’s interests as paramount and the economics of the situation.
Over the years Vlatkovich and McGowan have attracted a variety of clients. They now act for generations in one family. Whilst they act for individuals, they also act for companies and businesses.
As they are a small firm you know you will be dealing directly with one of the partners. A high level of attention is given by the individual partners to their respective clients.
Our Auckland law firm offers a personal legal service while maintaining excellence in legal advice. If a client has an issue they are unable to solve within the partnership then they do have a wide range of barristers that they can instruct who have specialist knowledge to deal with the client's issue.
