While the legal profession is full of accomplished and dedicated individuals, every so often, one stands out from the crowd. 

We are pleased to announce that Doug Solomon has once again been recognised by Best Lawyers and included in the 2025 edition of The Best Lawyers in Australia™. This is a well-deserved recognition of Doug’s expertise, dedication, and exceptional client service in the legal profession. 

We are extremely proud of Doug, who is known for his passion and dedication towards supporting his clients on an international, national, governmental, and local level.

Introducing Doug Solomon

As one of the founding partners of the firm, Doug Solomon is a company treasure, with his devotion and commitment to justice and service being at the very heart of who Solomon Brothers are, as well as what we stand for.

Doug has forged an esteemed career since first being admitted into the legal profession in 1979 and has extensive experience in a host of different areas of law.

A notable level of this experience lends itself to property law, where Doug is well-versed in consulting on everything from real property law, property planning and development law, strata titles law, to conveyancing and settlements, and leasing.

Outside of property law, Doug also has extensive experience in commercial law, insolvency, planning and environmental law, franchising, and administrative law (both with respect to commercial negotiation and drafting and with respect to commercial litigation and other types of dispute resolution).

Perth Lawyers Making a Difference

Doug is very big on giving back to the legal community and, as a member of the Property Law Committee of the Law Society of Western Australia for more than 30 years, was regularly involved in reviewing legislation and proposed legislation on behalf of the Law Society in the public interest.

Doug has also provided many years of pro bono legal advice and assistance to various charities and not-for-profit organisations.
