adair donaldson is the founder and director of donaldson law.

Adair founded Donaldson Law in 2016, to focus on a non-adversarial approach to achieving holistic solutions for his clients’ legal issues.

Over the last 20 years working in the law, Adair has practised across several areas, but always with a strong commitment to delivering lasting and meaningful solutions for his clients.

Always innovative and client focused in his practice of the law, Adair realised that aggressive litigation was not serving his clients’ best interests and so, founded Donaldson Law.

At Donaldson Law we are passionate about helping clients tell their stories. We understand how important it is for our clients to be able to trust their solicitor and we feel it is a privilege to have clients entrust us to help resolve their issues.

This innovative practice uses collaboration to effect meaningful outcomes for clients who want more than a day in court and a financial settlement.

Since 2016 Donaldson Law has grown into a national practice with clients in all states and territories of Australia. Have a look through our Legal Services or simply send us a message, to find out more about how we can help.
