Adair Donaldson


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

Adair is passionate about helping clients tell their stories, to ensure their voices are heard. He understands how important it is for clients to be able to trust their solicitor and he feels it is a privilege to have clients entrust him with their stories.

Adair was admitted as a solicitor in 1997, and he became a partner in the law firm Shannon Donaldson in 1999. In 2013 Shannon Donaldson was acquired by Shine Lawyers, and Adair worked for Shine as a Partner for over 3 years.

Adair Donaldson has appeared before Federal and State Parliamentary Committees to provide evidence with respect to addressing youth violence, alcohol related issues, and most recently in relation to abuse in the Australian Defence Force. In 2002 Adair was nominated for the Australian Plaintiff Lawyers Association Civil Justice Award in Queensland, and in 2005 he, along with his business partner Peter Shannon, won this same award.

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