Richard joined us in 2010 as a solicitor following completion of his training with a north east based commercial firm.
He is skilled in drafting and negotiating real estate documents such as agreements, transfers, leases and licenses, Richard also has a wide range of experience acting for clients in the public, private and educational sectors. This includes banks, universities, colleges and schools as well as private individuals.
Most recently Richard has advised several north east schools on academy conversions, national house builders on site acquisitions and regional infrastructure providers on lettings and site expansions. This is the kind of work, Richard says, that indicates the dynamism and ability of the Muckle team’s expertise to provide an excellent service to clients that can help the entire north-east economy.
Outside of work Richard spends most of his time with his wife and two young sons, cajoling, pulling and carrying them up hill and down dale in the wilds of Northumberland and Cumbria.
