Mark Richards


Senior Associate

Mark holds a Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting and Marketing) from the University of Western Australia and was admitted to practice in the Supreme Court of Western Australia in February 2009. Mark is also admitted to practice in the High Court of Australia.

Mark is a member of our commercial litigation team and practices in the areas of general commercial litigation, insolvency law (including enforcement of mortgage and other securities) and employment law. Mark has previously acted for a wide range of clients including private individuals, company directors, insolvency practitioners and commercial enterprises ranging in size from sole traders to Australia’s big four banks and he is always conscious of the fact that every client is different and requires legal services tailored to their specific needs.

He has experience in all aspects of commercial litigation, including corporate and contractual disputes, partnership and shareholder disputes, debt recovery, intellectual property disputes and claims made pursuant to the Australian Consumer Law. Mark also has a wide range of experience in insolvency and bankruptcy law and has recently completed the ARITA (Australian Reconstruction, Insolvency and Turnaround Association) Advanced Insolvency Law and Practice course. Mark also regularly provides strategic advice to clients in relation to employment and workplace relations issues including termination, confidentiality and restraints.

Mark regularly appears in all of the state courts as well as the Federal Court of Australia and Fair Work Commission. This hard earned experience has made Mark very conscious of how expensive and stressful the litigation process can be and for that reason Mark prides himself on achieving the most commercial and cost effective resolution that is possible for each of his clients.
