Richard joined Progression in June 2019, having worked locally since qualifying as a solicitor in 1993. Most of those years were as head of Wills, Probate and Trusts dealing almost exclusively with all aspects of Wills, Estates, Trusts, Inheritance Tax, Powers of Attorney, Court of Protection and trust and estate litigation, including seeking recovery of funds misappropriated, and professional negligence.
Richard’s main interest is in acting for older clients, and clients preparing for their later years, having a knack for explaining complex issues in simple language, and helping to navigate issues such as care fees, bereavement and difficult family situations.
Richard is a full member of both Society of Trust & Estate Practitioners and Solicitors for the Elderly. Richard was particularly interested in Solicitors for the Elderly due to their campaigning on behalf of the older population to influence government policy on issues such as care fees and Powers of Attorney.
Richard is based mainly at the Barrow-in-Furness and Ulverston offices.
