About Us

The name Richard Zande is synonymous with the Legal Profession in Ipswich from the early 1960’s, when Mr Zande Snr, Richard’s father, first set up the firm Richard Zande & Associates. Richard always wanted to be a lawyer and was admitted on the 22 February 1988 and has held continuous practicing certificates to the present date.

Now at 57 years of age Richard’s love of the practice is as strong as ever and he has no intention of slowing down. He has seen the years fly by and has witnessed many changes in the legal profession. One thing always remains the same and that is that people look for someone who understands and is willing to help them through ‘thick’ or ‘thin’.
Richard now celebrates over 31 years as a legal practitioner and is grateful for all the people who call him their solicitor.
