A seasoned corporate lawyer with over 25 years' experience advising on a wide variety of transactions.

Background: Richard began his career in the City with Lawrence Graham (now Gowling WLG), qualifying in 1995. He later worked for Burges Salmon and Eversheds, before joining Roxburgh Milkins as a partner in 2006.

In practice: As one of our corporate partners, Richard regularly handles mergers and acquisitions, buy-outs, private equity fund-raisings, joint ventures and re-organisations. He has long experience in working with a broad range of clients, including private and public companies, shareholders, entrepreneurs, management teams and banks.

In his own words: "Having previously worked for three very large firms, I find being part of such a dynamic entrepreneurial set-up really exciting and refreshing."

In his spare time: Another of our armchair rugby fans, Richard gets some exercise by running and kayaking, which gives him the excuse to indulge his other interest in cooking.
