Career

Richard trained with Booth & Co (now Addleshaws) where he worked as a Litigation Assistant after qualification in 1978. He then joined another commercial practice in Leeds where he built a parallel interest in employment law alongside his work in mainstream civil litigation and insolvency.

Richard has worked at Blacks Solicitors since 2009, where he is currently a Partner in the Employment team. With 40 years’ post-qualification under his belt, Richard is an expert employment practitioner, combining intellect with practical application to add real value for clients.

He specialises in TUPE, employment issues in insolvency, executive termination packages (including tax issues), post‑termination restrictions and the Commercial Agents Regulations. His background in civil litigation has given him an invaluable skill-set for those employment disputes which are particularly acrimonious, allowing him to display a powerful grasp of both tactics and litigation psychology.

Richard was the editor of “Humphrey’s District Registry Practice” (three editions) and has made occasional contributions to the Employment Lawyers’ Association’s publication “ELA Briefing” and Sweet & Maxwell’s “Insolvency Intelligence”.

He also led the successful application to the Court of Appeal in Huddersfield Fine Worsteds Ltd and Globe Worsted Ltd: Krasner v McMath – Case Nos: A2/2005/1731 and A2/2005/1744.
