I qualified as a solicitor in 2001 and became a partner at Pryers in 2013.

I’m married with two sons and live on the outskirts of Leeds. I’m a keen cyclist and spend much of my free time riding in the Yorkshire Dales and, when time allows, the mountains of Europe.

I head a team of 10 solicitors and legal executives.

Over the years I have dealt with almost every type of clinical negligence case and I particularly enjoy those involving very complex medicine. A large part of my current work concerns serious spinal injuries and brain injuries, particularly those sustained around the time of birth. I have a lot of experience of orthopaedic cases, especially those concerning joint replacement and I really enjoy dealing with claims with a foreign or international element. I head our Product Liability team, acting for people who have suffered injuries caused by all sorts of defective medical devices.

I’m a member of the Law Society Clinical Negligence Accreditation Scheme and the Spinal Injuries Association solicitors’ panel.

Testimonials

A dynamic, talented solicitor who sets the bar in both medical negligence and product liability actions

Richard is caring yet professional in every way and comes highly recommended by myself with great results achieved

Richard is extremely thorough and has great attention to detail. He really gets under the skin of a case and leaves no stone unturned.

He is definitely one of the biggest players in the North of England. He’s really on top of the science and the law.

I feel that I was treated like a person not just a client which I believe is important when going through something like this.
