“Richard has the ability to strike the right balance between common sense and what is legally correct. He understands when it is appropriate to pursue every fine legal point and when it doesn’t make commercial sense to do that. He has the fine intellect and street sense you need to get in there and nail difficult issues. He administers his work with quick hands and responsiveness”
“His strengths are high-level judgement and strategic advice that takes in the big picture”
