About Mark Davis
Mark Davis was admitted to practice in the Supreme Court of Victoria in 1993. He has worked principally in commercial law with a particular focus on dispute resolution, capital raisings and investment trusts. Much of his work has involved representing international clients interfacing with governments and local agencies.
By the late 1990’s Mark’s interests in world affairs also led him into investigative journalism. He has won Australia’s premiere journalism prize, the Walkley Award, five times. As well as working on an array of investigative reports in Asia, the Pacific and the Middle East he was a regular host and principal interviewer for Dateline, a weekly international affairs programme on SBS TV.
In 2016, Mark was a key advisor to Senator Nick Xenophon in his highly successful Federal election campaign that delivered three Senators and one House of Representatives to Xenophon’s fledgling NXT Party.
Today, utilising his vast array of political, legal and media contacts throughout South East Asia and the Pacific, Davis advises and acts for businesses seeking entry into emerging or high-risk markets. He also acts for international clients seeking to invest within Australia – providing legal services, financial assessments and background investigations for potential investments.
I like to work. I set my fees accordingly. I have very reasonable fixed charges for court appearances but otherwise can negotiate all fees according to the client and the task.
I don’t charge for initial discussions on cases and matters.
