01 April 2019
Richard Miskella won Lawyer of the Year at the Legal Business Awards 2019.
Now in its 22nd year, the Legal Business Awards took place at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London. These high profile awards recognise the leading players in the legal industry and the Lawyer of the Year category acknowledges truly exceptional individuals.
Richard was at the forefront of a number of significant cases in 2018 and continues to lead the campaign for a more diverse workplace. Most notably Richard led the investigation for The Old Vic into the allegations of sexual harassment against Kevin Spacey. He then advised in the development of The Old Vic’s Guardians Programme, designed to allow employees a confidential outlet to share concerns about behaviour at work. He continues to advise and train other organisations who want to set up a similar programme and so far over 130 organisations have established a Guardians programme, from a variety of sectors and locations around the world.
