Founding Partners

André Donnelly-Bornman

The driving force behind DONNELLY-BORNMAN LAW Inc., André is not just its Founder, Managing Director, and Chief Vision Officer; he’s the embodiment of dedication, resilience, and visionary leadership in the legal profession.

With over a decade of rich experience, André’s journey in the legal world is nothing short of remarkable. Merely two days after triumphantly completing his final Bachelor of Law examination, he plunged headfirst into the realm of law practice, embarking on his vocabulary training (or “articles”, as it was traditionally termed) at a renowned law firm. This marked the beginning of an illustrious career that saw him rise from a budding professional associate to a
director and shareholder of the very firm where he began his journey.

Your Partners in Law,


His tenure witnessed the firm’s exponential growth, doubling its strength from 15 to 30 dedicated team members. Yet, with an insatiable drive and a vision for a revolutionary approach to the legal practice, André took the bold step of founding DONNELLY-BORNMAN LAW Inc.

A staunch believer in lifelong learning and the power of constant improvement, André seamlessly integrates this philosophy into both his professional endeavours and personal life.

His openness to suggestions for improvement is a testament to his humility and commitment to excellence.

Guided by his favourite quote, “First do what you have to do, and thereafter do what you want to do”, André’s journey is a beacon of inspiration for budding legal professionals and entrepreneurs alike.
