Richard Collins

Spear's Review 

An experienced cross-border operator, Richard Collins advises on all aspects of family law, including divorce, separation agreements and financial matters. The veteran Keystone Law partner advises cohabiting couples and is experienced in relocation cases and claims against offshore trusts (speaking fluent French and German helps). 

Clients laud the ‘absolute professionalism and authoritative approach’ of Collins, a former advertising man who joined Charles Russell in 1994. He is ‘above all a compassionate, caring, friendly and sympathetic human being’, says one peer. 

Another praises his ‘wisdom and sense of humour’. It helps to be a natural; ‘You are a family lawyer, or you’re not – I think it’s genetic,’ he says. Away from work, Collins is a keen painter who also enjoys skiing, doing up houses and ‘all things Italian’.
