Jason Richards


Jason was admitted to practice in 1997, having graduated from James Cook University.  After he completed a Master of Laws at QUT in 2001, Jason was made a partner in another Brisbane firm, before forming Harding Richards Lawyers with Paul Harding in 2003.

Jason’s expertise covers the full spectrum of commercial advice from the negotiating through to litigation.  His extensive litigation experience means that he takes a very thorough and practical approach to the negotiation and drafting of commercial documents.  His strong negotiating skills have led to successful outcomes in the brokering of commercial deals and the resolution of disputes.

Jason also heads the family law team and has considerable experience in all areas of family law throughout all stages of the process from advising clients to negotiating settlement to court proceedings.  Jason has been involved in a number of cases that are extremely complex involving companies, businesses, trusts, commercial and residential property, shareholding portfolios and cash in the bank.  Jason’s knowledge and ability, and his passion for representing his clients, has seen this side of the firm grow considerably through referrals which is a testament to him and the rest of the family law team.
