Richard has over 35 years of experience in successfully resolving family law issues for clients who appreciate his calm and analytical approach. As a qualified Collaborative practitioner and Mediator he urges couples to overcome their disputes wherever possible without having to go to Court especially when they involve children or finances. He welcomes the new rules requiring separating couples to consider Family Mediation as a means of reaching solutions without the need for Court proceedings.
“The benefits of Mediation are clear to see; it’s cheaper and often a lot quicker than going through the heartache and expense of court. Relationship breakdown is extremely distressing so it’s important that the clients not only have a champion but also someone who will work with them in a supportive and sympathetic way with a view to achieving a fair and practical solution to their problems”.
Richard specialises in;
- Financial resolution and pension issues arising from divorce or separation, including high value and complex cases
- Financial settlements involving business assets, and other valuation issues
- Advice on pre-nuptial, cohabitation and separation agreements.
Richard works out of the Swindon and Marlborough offices.
