More about Rick

Rick is a commercial litigator who specialises in complex, high value cross-border fraud and insolvency matters, including those which involve claims for breach of contract, fraud and/or breach of fiduciary duties and asset tracing. He has also worked on a number of offshore trust matters in the Caribbean and elsewhere. He regularly deals with and instructs investigators and offshore lawyers.

Rick has considerable experience in acting for insolvency practitioners, mainly on contentious complex cross-border insolvency matters. He has valuable experience of interlocutory hearings and trials in the Commercial Court in the British Virgin Islands and elsewhere in the Caribbean.

He also has significant experience acting for clients on claims involving parties from Russia and the CIS, as well as the Middle East.

Rick has consistently been ranked in leading legal directories such as Chambers UK and Legal 500, with clients noting his "thorough and diligent" approach to matters, his strong technical ability at "strategy and developing a case from beginning to end", and his "extraordinary talent in client care". In addition, Rick has been described as "responsive and able" and "particularly good in terms of dealing with complex issues which have multiple angles and multiple interested parties" and is considered by "market commentators to be a real 'rainmaker' whom clients love".

Rick is a ranked lawyer within the Civil Fraud section of Chambers UK 2016, and is recommended within the Dispute Resolution (Commercial Litigation) section (2012, 2013). Rick is also ranked in Who's Who Legal 2018 for Asset Recovery.
