Practice notes

Richard is a Legal Director in our Employment Group.

He is an experienced employment tribunal litigator and has a strong reputation with clients for his discrimination law experience: Richard has been responsible for a variety of complex discrimination and whistleblowing cases over the last 17 years.

In addition to his contentious practice, Richard advises on international corporate transactions and global outsourcing projects.  He also has a depth of experience in advising clients on business and human rights and in particular the reporting requirements of the UK’s Modern Slavery Act 2015.

Richard advises on the full range of contentious and non-contentious employment matters and regularly speaks on public training courses and runs workshops with clients' senior managers and executive teams.

Richard has significant experience of advising clients in the health and life sciences sector.

The Legal 500 commented on Richard being 'impressive' and providing 'sensitive and sensible advice' on complex discrimination and whistleblowing claims.
