Richard joined Slaughter and May in January 2020, and advises both employers and trustees alike on a diverse range of pension law related issues. He has a wealth of experience on pension design and management having been a partner at another City law firm for a decade. He also has been involved in a number of high-profile corporate transactions with the involvement of the Pensions Regulator.
Richard has for many years acted for a number of trustee clients sponsored by FTS100 and Fortune 100 companies, with assets sizes in excess of £3 billion.
Richard combines his fee earning with a newly-created knowledge management role within the Pensions, Employment and Incentives department. The role fuses the two worlds of frontline fee-earning and non-client facing technical work.
Richard entered the rankings in 2014 following glowing praise from clients. Sources describe him as “technical, innovative and thorough” (Chamber 2014).
