Richard is responsible for scaling the TrustLaw programme globally, introducing pro bono in emerging markets, obtaining pro-bono legal support for leading NGOs and social enterprises and developing strategic research programmes on crucial policy issues such as women’s rights and social innovation.

TrustLaw supports over 2,200 NGOs and social enterprises across 170 countries with access to free legal advice. It is my job to ensure every one of these organisations meets our due diligence criteria, that our regional managers encourage the growth of pro bono through strategic relationships with law firms, and ultimately, that we’re driving social change through pro bono

. Richard also lead the Actions from the Trust Conference - an annual conference committed to finding real solutions to empower women and to fight slavery worldwide. At each conference, speakers and delegates propose innovative solutions to address social challenges.
