After graduating from the London School of Economics, Robin started his practical training under Hugh Skemp (one of the three original partners in the firm). He qualified in 1969 and was made an equity partner in the firm two years later. He was the Head of Civil Litigation and Senior Partner of the practice until 2010.
Robin specialised in Civil Litigation for most of his career. That specialism covered a wide range of work, including Commercial disputes, Professional Negligence and Contentious Probate.
He considers it still to be an essential part of his work to advise both private individuals and business clients on potentially contentious issues and problems with a view to resolving them well before litigation threatens. Also because of his knowledge of the problems that can arise when Wills are not properly prepared, he now regularly acts for clients in making their Wills, and also in completing Lasting Powers of Attorney.
Robin was Senior and Managing Partner of the firm from 2001 to 2010. He remains with the firm as a Consultant, retaining his links with existing clients and welcoming new ones.
