Richard is an Associate Solicitor specialising in commercial and complex property matters – everything from the purchase of small local shops, through to the leasing of large distribution units. Richard joined us in January 2019 after having spent the preceding 15 years working for Ellis-Fermor & Negus, where he spearheaded the opening and growth of their Belper office.
He studied law at Northumbria University in Newcastle before moving to the area with his wife to be closer to her family. They now live in Dronfield with their two children. Richard is a keen guitarist, although he tries to spend most of his free time these days with his children before ‘they get too old to want to spend time with mum and dad’!
