Richard has been specialising in transactional property work since 2004, and is the leader of the commercial property team for our Sheffield, Rotherham and Dronfield offices.
Before joining Taylor&Emmet LLP in 2019, Richard worked for Derbyshire-based practice Ellis-Fermor & Negus, where he spear-headed the opening of their Belper branch office in 2011 and oversaw its initial growth and success.
Amongst his regular clients Richard can list:
One of the largest construction companies in Derbyshire
Several of South Yorkshire’s larger independent house-builders
A northern regional restaurant franchise
An international packaging company
A large regional religious charity
Richard is experienced with all areas of commercial property transactions and queries (from the smallest lock-up garage lease to the largest warehouse purchase), but a large proportion of his work relates to pension fund acquisitions, development site acquisitions and planning agreements.
