Wilkinson Throsby & Edwards has a long and remarkable history of providing essential legal services in Bowral, Moss Vale and throughout the Southern Highlands and beyond.

It was 1929 when George Throsby first opened a law office in Moss Vale, a branch of the Sydney practice Wilkinson & Throsby.

Owen Edwards became a partner in 1948, which prompted the name change.

Owen Edwards and George Throsby ran the practice successfully for over 20 years until George’s sudden death in 1970.

Owen continued the practice after this and was joined in 1973 by David Cummins and Garry Barnsley.

In 1983, Bowral law firm, Price Prentice & Co, merged with Wilkinson Throsby & Edwards.

Leslie Price and Claud Prentice continued as Consultants to the merged firms for many years after this.

Owen Edwards retired in 1985. Brian Hanrahan and Irene Pickel then joined David Cummins and Garry Barnsley as partners of the firm.

During the mid-1980s, the firm took over the practice, TAF McCarthy & Son of Moss Vale, following the retirement of its then principal, TV McCarthy.

Susan McGowan and Andrew Cameron became partners in the firm in 1989.

In the years that followed, some of the partners left to follow other pursuits and from October 2009, the principals of the firm were David Cummins and Brian Hanrahan.

In 2013, Christopher Young joined David and Brian as a partner of the firm.
