Richard Webber

Partner and Head of Property Disputes


Richard has many years’ experience in advising on property matters and resolving property disputes. Prior to joining RLS Law, he worked at Lovells/Hogan Lovells and Mishcon de Reya, in the course of which he advised a varied range of institutional, corporate and entrepreneurial clients. 
He has a broad practice in contentious matters concerning real estate, including insolvency and professional negligence. He has a particular focus on commercial and residential landlord and tenant disputes including lease renewals/extensions and dilapidations issues. His particular specialisms include issues arising from rights of light, party walls, electronic communications and advertising spaces. 
Richard has published articles on a number of topics in various property journals including Estates Gazette, Property Week, Property Law Journal and RICS Commercial Property Journal and is a regular speaker on real estate issues at conferences and other events. In 2013 he was recognised by Super Lawyers as a Rising Star and Legal 500 has said that he delivers a “clear explanation of issues and possible avenues.”
When not lawyering, he enjoys music (particularly singing), beer, walking and spending time with his family – sometimes all at once.
