Richard is an experienced employment lawyer based in our London, Fetter Lane office.
He has a broad advisory and contentious practice centred around providing pragmatic, business focused solutions to commercial businesses, many of whom operate in heavily regulated sectors including global financial institutions and insurers.
Richard is a highly accomplished litigator and has successfully defended numerous complex and high value discrimination and whistleblowing claims, and other sensitive cases that involve regulatory, organisational and reputational risks.
His employment law advisory practice covers strategic projects and initiatives including large scale business transformations, collective redundancy exercises, complex restructurings, mergers and acquisitions and the full range of business and TUPE transfers.
Richard helps clients to navigate through more sensitive and complex complaints, particularly those involving whistleblowing or discrimination, and to safely manage higher risk scenarios, including senior staff departures and the enforcement of contractual restrictions and post-termination covenants.
In addition, Richard supports clients through the full range of day-to-day employee relations issues, including absence and performance management, disciplinary and grievance cases, recruitment and retention.
