Catherine Richmond

I trained and qualified as a solicitor at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, specialising in employment, pensions and benefits law on qualification. I later joined Nabarro LLP and was promoted to partner in 2008. In 2011 I requalified as a barrister and joined leading set Cloisters.

I have experience as both a solicitor and barrister in employment, discrimination and data protection law, and general commercial litigation such as business protection and partnership, shareholder and boardroom disputes.  

I have represented and advised organisations ranging from multinationals to small family businesses, and individuals from all walks of life, including in regulated sectors such as financial and professional services. 

I am a member of the Employment Lawyers’ Association and sit on the ELA's Training Committee. I am also a member of the Employment Law Bar Association, the Association of Partnership Practitioners and the Industrial Law Society. I contribute to a number of specialist legal publications on an ad hoc basis and am also a regular contributor on data protection for Emplaw Online.
