Richard BurtonSenior associate
Senior associate in the commercial litigation team
I am a senior associate in the commercial litigation team and have a wealth of experience in advising and representing local authorities, registered housing providers, companies, and charities. My practice encompasses a broad range of issues, including commercial contract disputes, agency issues, public law matters, and Equality Act issues. I understand the pressures faced within our clients’ sectors and specialise in assisting them to find pragmatic and cost-efficient solutions to novel and complicated problems.
I regularly advise clients in relation to high-value, complex contractual disputes, including disputes relating to PFI and PPP contracts. I have experience in managing claims through the business and property courts, the administrative court, the county court, tribunals, and arbitrations. Prior to joining Anthony Collins Solicitors, I worked as an in-house solicitor for a local authority and so have an in-depth knowledge of our local government and housing sector clients.
