Alex Donley


Alex is a solicitor in our Insurance & Health team and is based in the Sydney office.

"BN has an excellent culture, built around client focused solutions. The firm appealed to me as it’s provided me the opportunity to work with some of the best lawyers in Australia on high quality work."

Alex has experience in the areas of medical negligence and health, professional indemnity, financial lines including management liability and D&O, and general liability. He has a particular sub-speciality in complex claims, particularly brain injury, spinal injury and gross negligence cases, for which he has represented both plaintiffs and health care professionals and organisations.

"I was drawn to the insurance industry because insurance is essential to allow businesses and the market to function successfully. It fascinating to see how insurance intersects with all aspects of life."

Alex acts for domestic and global insurers and their insureds, including health care professionals, barristers, solicitors, accountants and real estate agents.

Prior to joining BN, Alex worked at a large plaintiff firm where he predominantly assisted on medical negligence litigation including class actions. This experience has afforded him the ability to provide a holistic approach to claims management and to understand the unique nuances of medical malpractice claims.

Alex has appeared in state and federal courts, tribunals and alternative dispute resolution forums.

Alex holds a Bachelor of Commerce, Bachelor of Laws (with honours) and Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice. He is a member of the NSW Claims Discussion Group (CDG), Young Insurance Professionals (YIPs), Australia New Zealand Sports Law Association (ANZSLA) and Law Society of NSW.
