Leading employment lawyer joins Setfords

The former managing partner of RHW Solicitors has joined Setfords Solicitors as a consultant.

Richard Brown has over 25 years’ experience and spent six years as Managing Partner and Head of Employment at RHW Solicitors in Guildford.

Richard’s expertise includes settlement agreements, TUPE issues on the sale and purchases of businesses, and contracts of employment.

During his time with RHW Richard helped set up the dental law department and can offer specialist advice to dentists regarding employment law and associate contracts.

Richard said: “Being freed of management responsibilities means I can concentrate purely on client work for the first time in a number of years. The network of consultants at Setfords is already proving very supportive and proactive.”

Co-CEO Guy Setford said: “With our historical ties to Guildford where we continue to keep our main base it is obviously wonderful for us to have such an established and well-respected local lawyer joining the firm.”

Co-CEO Chris Setford added: “Richard is highly regarded both within Guildford and as an employment lawyer and we are delighted he has decided to join us.”
