Barltrop Graham had its origins in the early 1900s with the firms John Graham & Son, J.E. Barltrop & Son, and Fullerton-Smith & Miles. Changes in personnel over many years culminated in the merger of “Barltrops” with “Graham, Miles & Chisnall” in 1994. That merger brought together two firms which could trace their origins back to the early days of Feilding.

Barltrop Graham merged its practice with that of Fitzherbert Rowe on 1 July 2017 so that it could continue to advise and assist its large client base with all the resources and support that the largest legal practice in the Manawatu can offer.
