Richard Fisher

Managing Partner and Dispute Resolution Practice Group Leader

Richard is the Managing Partner of Heringtons and divides his time between client work and his management responsibilities. He has always specialised in dispute resolution. In particular, he helps people to resolve disputes over property and inheritance. His experience has given him an in-depth knowledge of civil law and procedure which is supplemented by a very practical and pragmatic solution based approach.

Richard thrives on knotty problems to solve and enjoys helping his clients to achieve success whether in court or through mediation. He recognises that for many people contemplating instructing a solicitor can itself be a cause of great anxiety. A relaxed and friendly attitude coupled with accurate and timely cost estimates go a long way to setting troubled minds at rest.

His management responsibilities include being Client Care Partner with the objective of ensuring the firm delivers excellent service to all clients. Compliance Officer for Legal Practice and Money Laundering Compliance Officer and Data Protection Officer are also roles Richard fills within the firm


Richard has been practising law locally for more than 30 years qualifying as a solicitor in 1990.


Richard occasionally snatches a few moments away from the office to enjoy running (when injuries permit) and cycling alongside his much loved labradoodle, Hugo. Having an office in our Hastings branch means in the summer months Richard can enjoy a lunchtime swim. He regularly visits the theatre and cinema but likes nothing more some days than settling down to read a great book - with Hugo alongside again too obviously.
