About Us

Finding a good firm of lawyers that you can trust, who are affordable, explain things clearly and understand exactly what you want is vital for business and personal matters.

The team at McLachlan Thorpe Partners pride themselves on building long lasting relationships with their clients whilst providing them with a wide range of quality legal services.

In the biggest case (in financial terms) of the firm’s history, the man for whom they won a $55 million settlement from the Australian government had been a client of one of the partners for nearly three decades. As one of the founding partners, Peter McLachlan explains: “We are proud of the relationships we have developed, often acting for clients into second and third generations.”

McLachlan Thorpe Partners’ team of partners, solicitors, paralegals and support staff provide expertise in aspects of law from commercial and property to litigation, dispute resolution, family law and estate matters.
