Richard Perkoff - Direct Access Barrister

I am a commercial disputes lawyer with extensive experience of dealing with and helping to manage relationship crises in companies and partnerships, as well as all kinds of contract disputes. Recognised in the major directories as a top commercial and banking litigator, I also have extensive experience of cross-border disputes in many jurisdictions and of handling professional negligence claims against lawyers, accountants and financial advisers. I am a member of Littleton Chambers, a top-ranked commercial and employment law set.

Offering more than 40 years' experience in dealing with companies, partnership, commercial contract and civil fraud, I also specialise in banking, financial services, swaps and derivatives.

My Approach

I adopt a hands-on, pro-active approach to your problems… and I know my way around the law and the judges. As an experienced mediator I am well aware that litigation is not the only solution – and it certainly won't be the cheapest. You can expect realistic, cost-sensitive, practical advice.

About Me

I am the author of a leading textbook on civil procedure and numerous articles on Littleton Chambers' website and elsewhere dealing with my core specialisms. I spend my spare time reading, travelling, swimming and avoiding gyms.

My qualifications include an MA (Oxon) and I am a Member of the London Court of International Arbitration, as well as an Accredited Mediator. Chambers & Partners 2011 commended my " 'three dimensional, chess-type' strategic thinking."
