Richard has been qualified as a solicitor since 1980 having entered the profession in 1972 as an “office boy”. He worked his way through the legal training, firstly as a legal executive, where he became an Associate of The Institute of Legal Executives. This qualification enabled him to acquire articles with Taylor Glover & Hill in Doncaster and following two and a half years at the College of Law in Guildford and 5 years articles completed with Taylor Glover & Hill he was admitted in 1980.
He was offered a partnership with Taylor Glover & Hill in 1982 and remained with that firm through an amalgamation with Ward Bracewell, where the firm became known as Taylor Bracewell. He served with that firm until 2009, when following a re-structuring of Taylor Bracewell, Richard remained where he had been based (in their Epworth office since 1979) and merged that office with Hayes Son & Richmond where he remained as a salaried partner until retirement in Oct 2015.
He has since then been offered consultancy work with Mason Baggott & Garton, a role which very much suits him and enables him to keep in contact with the many friends and clients he has acquired after serving the “Isle Community” for nearly 40 years.
Richard specialises in land law, agricultural matters, residential and commercial conveyancing, Estate administration and Wills
