Founded in 1958 by Frank McLaughlin, the firm’s history is dotted with milestone decisions that helped shape the development of its home city, the Gold Coast.

Having managed the legal matter of Kinkabool, the first high-rise apartment building on the Gold Coast, this local firm built a reputation for innovative and legally brilliant solutions. Today, McLaughlins Lawyers continues to build on an incredible foundation of success by securing the brightest new legal minds and continuing to dedicate itself to providing total confidence to its clients. Legal Practice Director, Ian Kennedy, says that after all these years of practice the firm has never faced a greater challenge than that of uncertainty. Ian says that " uncertainty of what restrictions will be and when they will ease has made it difficult for businesses to undertake any planning for even short term goals.". 

McLaughlins Lawyers has had 60 years experience of being agile and adaptable, something the firm believes is central to facing the road ahead. Ian Kennedy says it's also important to "stay connected with business groups like the Chamber for the support that comes from other people in business facing similar challenges. The Chambers are also more important now than ever in letting our politicians know the real impact of the decisions they are making and holding them accountable". Through tough times and unprecidented pressure, McLaughlins Lawyers says it continues to push ahead and "support clients who will always have personal legal needs and business legal needs".
