Richard Miskella named in The Lawyer Hot 100 for 2020
28 January 2020
Lewis Silkin’s Joint Managing Partner Richard Miskella has been listed in The Lawyer Hot 100: Leaders for 2020
The Lawyer Hot 100 recognises the most daring, innovative and creative lawyers from in-house, private practice and the Bar. Everyone who is named in the Hot 100 has one thing in common: they are the lawyers of the moment. All those on the current list are shaping the legal profession right now.
We are delighted that Richard has been recognized following his high profile investigation into the allegations of sexual harassment against Kevin Spacey at THE OLD VIC. What followed was the development of a pioneering workplace scheme called ‘The Guardians Programme’, to reassure people that they have a voice and allow employees a confidential outlet to share concerns about behaviour at work. Richard advised and trained other organisations to set up similar programmes, on a pro bono basis. Now over 130 organisations have established a Guardians programme.
At Lewis Silkin he, and fellow partner Lucy Lewis, developed the ‘A Lasting Change’ campaign (www.lewissilkin.com/alastingchange) aimed at creating long lasting improvement in women’s experience of work and overall make the working environment a better place for everyone. We provide training on diversity, anti-sexual harassment, leadership programmes and ‘speak up’ seminars.
