Specialising in CCA compliance and FCA regulatory advice, Richard is a partner in Blake Morgan’s Banking and Finance team.

Main areas of practice

Richard has specialised in financial services work for more than 25 years with particular experience in advising equipment finance lessors and motor vehicle financers.

Richard’s background as a financial services litigator informs his advice to clients on the full range of compliance and regulatory issues for financial service companies. In recent years he has continued to supervise Blake Morgan’s defended financial services litigation team, but spends most of his time advising clients on non-contentious issues, particularly the recent changes to FCA regulation to incorporate CCA funders.
