Since qualifying as a solicitor in 1987, Richard has specialised in estate planning work. He advises clients on how to protect their wealth and also guides them on the most appropriate methods of transferring that wealth, both during lifetime and on death.
I was always interested in law because it affects all aspects of people’s lives.
I can’t identify a particular career highlight, however I’m always pleased when clients tell me that I’ve helped them understand a particular legal issue for the first time.
I was with my previous firm for many years; moving to Gardner Leader has challenged me to consider my previous working practices and find ways to improve them!
Gardner Leader is a forward thinking and ambitious firm, however the firm retains a genuine interest in the local communities where the offices are located.
The person who never made a mistake never made anything.
I’ve always been fascinated by the weather so would like to be a meteorologist.
I used to be a very good juggler (no requests for demonstrations please!)
