About Us

It's a long story...

Kahns began in 1940 when Dr Kahn was admitted to practice law in Victoria. He was later joined by Dr Clahr to form the partnership of Kahn & Clahr. In 1961 the firm was expanded with Alexander Garsa joining the partnership and the firm traded as Kahn, Clahr and Garsa.

The firm later merged with the firm of Dizgalvis & Co. Our current partners (John Cascone, Mark Worsnop and Paul Falzon) each joined the firm in the mid-1990s.
