Rising Stars 2020

Company: Sharp Tudhope Lawyers
Job title: Partner

Richard Hoare joined Sharp Tudhope as an associate in 2017 and has since risen through the ranks to become partner. Hoare’s legal career commenced at Kensington Swan in 2010. Prior to joining Sharp Tudhope, he practised in Australia, first as an associate in the Melbourne office of leading global law firm HFW, and then at boutique Melbourne-based M&A firm Clarendon Lawyers. Since his arrival in Tauranga, Hoare has leveraged his first-class international experience to establish himself as a leading lawyer in the mid-market mergers and acquisitions field and as a lawyer of choice to Tauranga’s start-up community. It’s his drive and commercial acumen that saw him promoted to partner within his first year with the firm. In February 2019, he joined the board of EA GP Ltd which is the general partner and manager of three existing Enterprise Angels investment funds. In addition to legal work, Hoare has also contributed to the community. He’s provided pro-bono advisory services to Stem Wana Trust, which promoted and delivered the inaugural Tauranga STEM Festival; he’s served as the lead angel for Venture Centre’s Angelic Drop-In clinics, an initiative intended to welcome ‘all comers’ and provide guidance and advice to budding entrepreneurs; and delivered guest lectures for Auckland University’s 300 level Companies Law paper.
