Our Story.


Harris Wheeler was established in Newcastle in 1882 and operated a Toronto office for over 40 years. In 2017, the Newcastle office of Harris Wheeler merged with Hall & Wilcox and the Toronto office of Harris Wheeler was sold to Halyburton Legal Pty Ltd. 

Kathryn Halyburton, the director of Halyburton Legal Pty Ltd, had worked for Harris Wheeler for about 17 years with 4 years working from and managing the Toronto office. Kathryn jumped at the opportunity to be involved again with the Toronto clients.
