Richard is a partner based in our City office with over 25 years’ experience advising on a range of business rates issues. He specialises in strategic rating advice to occupiers and landlords in the City of London, Docklands and other central London markets, as well as coordinating national portfolios.

He focusses predominantly on the financial sector with numerous banking and insurance occupier clients such as JPMorgan, Bank of England, Schroders, Swiss Re, Credit Suisse, Close Brothers, AJG, Barings and SocGen. He also advisers blue chip occupiers across a range of other sectors such as BP, Whitbread, Shell, Hogan Lovells, City of London Corporation, Turner & Townsend, Kaplan and BLM.

In addition, he heads the Firm’s empty rates strategies and advises owners, developers and occupiers in mitigating empty rates liability, including strategies for de-rating in the light of the “Monk” case, temporary reliefs and legal empty rates schemes.
