How We Got Here:

17 years of learning what works (& what doesn’t)…

The Start

Back in 2001, Mark Harley (the Founder and Principal of Boss Lawyers) decided to combine his passion for law and information technology by undertaking undergraduate tertiary studies.

The next 13 years

For the next 7 years, Mark worked in the legal industry and completed his undergraduate tertiary degrees in both law and information technology (majoring in information systems).  He also completed the necessary legal training entitling him to practise as a solicitor / lawyer in Queensland.

Mark then worked for various boutique commercial litigation, insolvency and commercial firms honing his skills and refining his craft before deciding to setup Boss Lawyers.

The Last 5 years

Boss Lawyers started in 2014 when one of our directors, Mark Harley, was working for a specialist commercial litigation and insolvency firm in Brisbane and decided to focus on a niche legal market, and work for a select few clients.

Since then, Boss Lawyers has helped over thousands of businesses and individuals with various commercial, insolvency and commercial litigation disputes. Over that time we have noticed that:

  • relationships with your clients matter.  There must be mutual trust and confidence.  We invest time and expertise to build trusted alliances with our clients;
  • we have acquired a formidable reputation as “tough litigators” and we know our reputation is only as good as our last job;
  • if you do the right thing by people, they will generally come back to you or refer a colleague.

Since the inception of Boss Lawyers, Mark Harley and the BOSS team have earned the reputation for being tenacious, trustworthy, and no-nonsense professionals, delivering measured and outcome focused legal solutions.

Working with a lawyer is not only about their understanding of the law but the ideal relationship requires your lawyer to also offer practical and pragmatic advice. Additionally, it is important for your lawyer to be contactable and to understand your risk profile with regards to the matter being dealt with. In my dealings with Mark and his team at Boss Lawyers, I have found all of the above to be true.

Mark and the team provided exceptional advice and client service. They readily provided advice outside of office hours which we needed and really appreciated. Our matter was resolved on time and with the outcome we were looking for and accordingly we would not hesitate to use Mark and Boss Lawyers again and can highly recommend them.

I am the treasurer of a body corporate that has engaged Boss Lawyers for advice on legal issues in relation to management rights and what the committee considered to be breaches of the caretaking agreement. I believe that the advice from Boss Lawyers on both a strategic and legal level has ended up producing an outcome for our scheme that is far more palatable to that which we would otherwise have had. I can recommend Boss Lawyers to any body corporate with similar issues. Emmanuel Sarris, Treasurer The Wellington Body Corporate for East Brisbane

I highly recommend Mark Harley from Boss Lawyers, he provided me with exceptional advice and a proposal for the best course of action which resulted in a positive outcome I didn't believe was possible. Mark is a skilled and accomplished litigator who cares for his clients and does the extra yards to ensure satisfactory outcomes.

I was happy with the work Mark did for me. He was thorough, pragmatic and very commercial in his advice. He did not over complicate matters. He was also cost conscious and very responsive to my needs.
