"Richard has advised Systech for over 15 years and has supported the Group in a variety of strategic issues, including: restructuring the global organisation and its finances, potential acquisitions, senior lateral hires and the creation of our own ABS law firm, Systech Law, at the very outset of when external ownership of law firms was permitted.
He can tackle complex work at speed and delivers on time, focussing on the big picture but explaining detailed technicalities in an easy-to-understand way.
We appreciate his ability to have oversight of all our requirements, even in the event of bringing in other partners to handle something outside his area of expertise. He makes sure the solution will fit the specifics of our business."
Systech is a professional Management Consultancy practice, and we work to exacting standards; Richard has always delivered to the very high standards we demand.
On a more personal note, he has encouraged me to take up cycling and the gym, pastimes that are dear to his heart and now mine!"
Stephen RaymentCEO, Systech Group Limited
"Richard advised us on the sale of Currell, our 28 year old estate agency chain and property consultancy business, to Savills PLC (FTSE 250) .
An expert in company and contract law he was commercial, determined, diligent and always available whatever the hour.
We felt the deal mattered as much to him as it did to us.
An industry stalwart."
