Joined Lawson West: 2016.
Richard is the head of Lawson-West’s commercial dispute resolution department.
He is very experienced in handling high-value and complex disputes, from the early pre-action stages right through to trial and appeal. He regularly deals with litigation in both the County Court and the High Court, but is also a skilled negotiator and works tirelessly to achieve the best resolution for his clients.
He has acted on behalf of a wide range of commercial clients, from owner managed businesses and SMEs to large PLC’s and government departments. He also assists business entrepreneurs and other individuals in the resolution of disputes.
Richard has a wealth of legal knowledge and is adept at handling all types of commercial disputes. He also advises clients in relation to all aspects of property related disputes and insolvency and corporate recovery matters.
He comments: “I have a commercial and pragmatic approach to all matters. Litigation is both time consuming and costly and can be an unwelcome distraction.
I therefore take the time to understand my client’s position and priorities. I provide objective advice and then work hard to achieve the best resolution as quickly and cost effectively as possible”.
Client testimonial: “Thank you for your excellent advice and counsel on this matter. From initial instruction the whole claim process has been handled both professionally and diligently, culminating in yesterday's successful negotiation of an out-of-court settlement.”
