Mark’s commitment to technical excellence in litigation and dispute resolution, along with his genuine passion for exceptional client service, has earned him a reputation that is unsurpassed within his industry.
In establishing his own law firm in 2002, Mark’s intention was to build a practice that went above and beyond the already lofty service and quality standards set by the country’s top-tier firms. He firmly believes that great client experiences are about more than just successful legal outcomes. For Mark and his team at Deutsch Miller, the goal is to also build lasting relationships based on a deep empathy for the client’s situation, real accessibility in times of need, and supported with clear and frequent communication.
As a result, Mark has become a long-term and trusted advisor to some of Australia’s most prominent private clients, assisting with the range of issues associated with tightly held wealthy family companies, businesses and estates and trusts. He has also developed particular expertise in acting and advising on highly complex commercial, real property and equity disputes for a variety of high profile clients including public and private companies, investors, and the variety of players in the property sector.
Prior to starting Deutsch Miller, Mark was a solicitor in the litigation group at Mallesons Stephen Jaques (now King & Wood Mallesons). Since that time he has handled numerous disputes arising from property transactions and developments; private client estate and succession matters; complex equity claims including claims for breach of trust; as well as partnership disputes.
Mark has also developed long-standing relationships with some of the most highly regarded senior barristers at the NSW Bar and has significant experience in successfully acting for and representing clients at mediations conducted by Sydney’s best ex-judicial officer mediators.
When he is not helping steer the Deutsch Miller ship, Mark enjoys soaking up the water, sun and sand in the Sutherland Shire with his children. And, occasionally, he can be found lying awake late at night brainstorming new and unexpected ways to give his Deutsch Miller clients that ‘wow’ experience.
