Contributors
Richard is a barrister with over 10 years’ experience in the civil courts in England and Wales. He qualified following pupillage at 13 King’s Bench Walk chambers, where he had a broad civil common law practice dealing primarily with personal injury, debt recovery and personal/corporate insolvency. In 2014 he moved to 42 Bedford Row chambers where his practice became more focused on landlord and tenant matters and commercial contract disputes.
 

Through extensive exposure to the courts on a nearly daily basis he has developed an in-depth understanding of the practical application of the CPR in day-to-day litigation, both in interim hearings and substantive trials.
