Richard Santy


What can Richard do for you?

Richard is an employment partner based in the firm's Birmingham and London offices. His focus is on the private sector and, while he advises on all aspects of employment law, has a particular emphasis on complex litigation. Richard is also a core member of the sports and retail sector teams.

Supporting your ambitions

Richard helped a major global retailer with a series of connected tribunal claims involving five claimants, eight separate issues and a total of five weeks before a judge. While the objective is always to avoid litigation for clients, sometimes this in't possible and it is vital to put the client's best case across. To see the faces of the witnesses when their actions were vindicated still gives Richard an immense sense of satisfaction even to this day.

What do others say?

Richard has been described as commercial and pragmatic with a "can do" attitude. The HR Director at Bloor Homes, with whom Richard has worked with for more than 18 years, stated that Richard’s advice sets him apart from others in terms of combining a broad range of knowledge and experience of employment law with a pragmatic approach to each case.

What else should you know?

A very long time ago, Richard used to be a professional tennis player. He has travelled all over the world playing in ITF professional tournaments and team events. He now has a top 100 seniors world ranking. His competitive attitude may explain his desire to fight for the best outcome for his clients!
