Richard Clegg is the head of the Commercial Litigation team and Personal Injury team. Richard is a Grade A Solicitor.
Richard specialises in Professional Negligence and Defamation as well as Personal Injury. Legal 500 have recognised Richard with the “Leading Individual” award, describing him as “unquestionably a man of complete integrity” and “a level of expertise, candour and sound legal reasoning rarely experienced with other firms”. Richard also regularly attends the Citizens Advice Bureau and Norfolk Community Law Service to provide members of the public with free advice on a range of problems.
Richard’s caseload includes a recent success in a Professional Negligence claim based on a Solicitor’s failure to Register the Client’s Title on purchase. This resulted in the Client losing the chance of a development acquisition some years later. The Defendant denied any loss throughout the claim, however following Mediation accepted the Claimant’s claim for loss and put forward an offer of settlement – which the Client was delighted to accept.
Richard has succeeded in obtaining compensation for a client who was defamed on Facebook by his previous Landlord. The internet has revolutionised how people communicate – and also insult each other.
Richard has recently taken over a claim from previous Solicitors – who dropped the case because they did not believe their Client’s version of events. On careful consideration of the Defendant’s suggested version, to include noting that some of the Defendant’s security camera evidence was missing, combined with an early offer in respect of liability has resulted in the Defendant admitting fault for the accident. The Claimant is therefore delighted that she shall be receiving compensation for her injuries.
