McLaughlins merged with McDonald and Company Solicitors, a firm established in Burleigh by John McDonald over 45 years ago. McLaughlins practices both from its existing premises in Southport and also from Level 2 McDonald House, 37 Connor Street, Burleigh Heads.
Founded in 1958 by Frank McLaughlin, the firm quickly established a reputation for providing leading edge commercial advice and competent and aggressive litigation services dedicated to meeting client needs in a timely and cost effective manner.
McLaughlins has since its foundation provided cutting edge legal services. By way of example, Frank McLaughlin handled legal matters for Kinkabool, the first high-rise apartment building on the Gold Coast, at a time when there were no legal rights to ownership of units that were “floating in the air”. The firm has continued that tradition of providing innovative solutions in commercial law matters.
The firm was then known as McLaughlin, Gordon and Lennon and practiced under that name from the 1960’s until 1992 when the name was changed to McLaughlins Solicitors. On 1 October 2010, when McLaughlins incorporated with the practice of McDonald and Company Solicitors, Mclaughlins changed its name to the present McLaughlins Lawyers.
The firm has consolidated and built on its strong commercial law base, and in recent years developed a reputation as a family law specialist and a litigation specialist, particularly in general commercial litigation and insolvency.
