Mitchell Clark, Partner of MBA Lawyers was recognised for his leading contribution at invitation-only special function conducted by the Premier of Queensland and Minister for Trade, The Honourable Annastacia Palaszczuk at Parliament House in Brisbane on 18 September, 2018.  In recognition of Mitchell’s over 18 years’ service in the legal support of Japanese visitors to Queensland, together with the encouragement of continuing strong trade and commerce relations between Queensland and Japan, over 400 guests listened to the encouraging words of the Premier who highlighted the importance of the now long-standing business and political connection between Queensland and Japan.

More than 50% of Japanese visitors to Australia visit Queensland alone.  The number of visitors this year to Queensland has increased by a staggering 16,000, with in excess of 202,000 visitors.  The majority of the Japanese travelling abroad to Queensland are for holiday purpose, yet with large number also visiting for the purpose of education.

Mitchell is an expert lawyer in the area of injury compensation.  He has spent over 27 years working in this area in the support of accident victims.  In addition to providing support to locals, he is active in representing people living interstate and overseas, who were unfortunate to be involved in accident while visiting Queensland.  He has helped people from New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia, Canada, USA, China, Taiwan, France, South Korea and Israel in addition to his involvement in the support of Japanese visitors to Queensland.

Not that anyone wants to think about it, yet if the unfortunate occurs and you are in need of support as a result of an accident in Queensland, Mitchell offers a complementary consultation to allow a review of the potential avenues that can provide you with financial benefit.

One of Mitchell’s several successful Court cases is now regarded as the leading case in the compensation industry in Queensland.  Due to Mitchell’s  involvement, the injured person (23 year old visitor from Nagoya in Japan run over by bus on first day in Cairns) received an award from the Supreme Court of over $3million.
