Farrer & Co | Henrietta Richards, Associate

Practice areas

  • Dispute Resolution

Henrietta is an Associate in the Disputes team.

Henrietta advises on all stages of the litigation process, from initial case analysis through to trial. Recognising that litigation is not always appropriate in every case, she also assists with settlement negotiations to achieve commercial outcomes for her clients.

Henrietta has assisted in claims in the County Court, High Court and First Tier Property tribunal. She has a broad practice and her experience ranges from property disputes and insolvency matters, to art related disputes, commercial contract disputes and advice on debt recovery.

Much of Henrietta’s work has an international element, and she has experience in liaising with lawyers in other jurisdictions, most particularly in France where she is assisted by her French language skills.

As well as private individuals, Henrietta’s recent clients have included museums and galleries, a private bank as well as other commercial organisations.

Henrietta qualified as a solicitor in 2019.

  • Henrietta is a member of The City of Westminster and Holborn Law Society and sits on their Junior Lawyers Division Committee as Wellbeing & Resilience representative.

    Henrietta speaks fluent French, having spent a year studying at the Université de Grenoble, and has recently taken up legal French classes at work. She also speaks conversational Spanish.

    At Farrers, Henrietta enjoys taking part in many different CSR initiatives. Along with other members of the firm, she volunteers at a local legal advice centre where she provides pro bono advice to those who would not otherwise be able to access legal services.
