Richard has a strong specialism within the banking sector dealing with litigation on behalf of building societies both in the County Court and High Court.

Richard’s lender practice ranges from Claimant work in respect of professional negligence claims involving valuers or conveyancers; complex mortgage arrears cases involving issues such as undue influence, misrepresentation, unfair relationships and/or breaches of MCOB and recovering mortgage shortfalls on behalf of lenders – which tend to be defended on the basis of a sale at undervalue and/or limitation.
