With extensive experience of complex white-collar crime and civil fraud, Richard acts in a wide range of contested matters and investigations predominantly arising out of fraudulent and criminal misconduct. He practises within the regulatory and anti-bribery and corruption, international arbitration, and commercial litigation teams.
Richard is experienced in crisis management, and increasingly acts for companies and financial institutions dealing with cyberattacks, and associated regulatory, criminal and litigation issues. The Legal 500 writes that Richard is ‘praised’ by Chinese clients as ‘enthusiastic and smart’.
