We are delighted to welcome a new trustee to our board. Richard Swallow is Head of the Disputes and Investigations Group at law firm Slaughter and May.
His areas of particular expertise include corporate crime and sanctions investigations, group/class action litigation, and banking litigation and investigations. With over 25 years of experience of a wide range of complex and substantial disputes and investigations, Richard has represented clients in high-value, multi-jurisdictional, proceedings and significant global regulatory and criminal investigations.
Richard also drives activity in Thrive, the firm’s mental health and wellbeing network as a visible supporting partner. Thrive aims to: destigmatise mental illness; raise awareness about, and create a culture of openness around, mental health issues; promote all-round wellbeing both in the workplace and in our personal lives; and develop a robust system of support and resources for employees who are experiencing mental health or wellbeing issues, or who simply wish to learn more about how they can support themselves and others.
