Richard Atkinson

Solicitor Manchester Real Estate Commercial

Richard joined JMW in April 2018. Based in Real Estate but dealing with construction contracts as well as disputes, Richard is part of our growing Construction team which assists and advises all clients great and small. No matter the size of the scheme or dispute, the team is on hand to advise clients on their obligations under construction contracts; whether it be a matter of construction, refurbishment, new build, housing, commercial, civil engineering or process plant contracts.

Richard advises developers on building contracts and other construction documents ranging from appointments, novations and warranties, to crane oversail licences, performance bonds and guarantees. Typically, the JCT contract is the most commonly encountered building contract in the UK, though the team is experienced in also dealing with NEC contracts and those published by IChemE and IMECHE.

Having graduated from the University of Exeter in 2013, Richard completed his LPC at Staffordshire University before training at Knights plc. Richard has previous experience in a range of Commercial and Residential property matters, as well as Insolvency, Restructuring and Commercial Litigation, all of which provide excellent ancillaries to the situations encountered daily when working in Construction.

Outside of work Richard enjoys music, theatre and sports, with particular interests in football, basketball and American football.
