Richard Biggs



I work in the Serious Injury team, specialising in complex and catastrophic injury cases. I am involved from the very start to the conclusion of every case, working to get each of my clients the very best possible rehabilitation from the outset to restore their quality of life quickly.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

Law is all I ever wanted to do. I remember choosing my A levels with that sole aim in mind. I have gradually worked my way up from dealing with the most straightforward of claims when I was a newly qualified solicitor, to the most complex of cases.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

I am passionate about the work I do and give my all for my clients. An award of damages is just one part of the work I do and I believe the journey to the award is equally important.

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

Our great strength is that we work as a team, each member bringing different qualities and expertise to ensure our clients receive the highest possible level of advice and guidance.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

I have a two young children who, as well as being my greatest achievements, keep me very busy away from the office. I love watching and playing all sports and am a keen runner, participating in half marathons. I'm just trying to get round to making that step up to 26 miles.

    Solicitors On Ice - Irwin Mitchell Makes Manchester Sledgehockey Donation

    “We had a fantastic time trying out sledgehockey, although our skills may need a bit more development before we’re competing at the same level as the Manchester Phoenix. “Many of our clients turn to disability sports to help with their recovery and rehabilitation as they seek to overcome their injuries and make progress in their lives. We want to help more people to be able to get involved in sledgehockey and are delighted to be donating a new sledge to the team. They are an inspiration to others who have limited mobility and hopefully we will be able to continue supporting the Manchester Phoenix Sledgehockey team in future.”
