Recognised by Legal 500 (published November 2011) as being ‘a pleasure to work with, with massive attention to detail and a commercial outlook’ (Banking and Finance), Richard is also praised by Chambers & Partners (published November 2011):
“The set is also home to the highly regarded Richard Perkoff, who has a wealth of experience in commercial law matters, from directors' duties and shareholder disputes to banking and financial services litigation” (Commercial Dispute Resolution).
Lauded by clients for his willingness to get 'stuck-in', Richard is an expert advocate in general company and commercial law and has a wide range of experience in dealing with the purchase and sale of companies, directors' duties and shareholder disputes, partnership, conflict of laws, banking and financial services and with all aspects of solicitors’ practice from drafting partnership agreements to money laundering.
Recent cases include British Arab Commercial Bank plc v The National Transitional Council of the State of Libya  EWHC 2274 (Comm) in which Richard acted for the National Transitional Council in the first case which accepted the NTC’s authority as the sole government of Libya recognised by HMG and denies the Qadhafi regime locus standi in the English Courts.
As indicated above, leading legal directories have consistently highlighted Richard's prowess in cases which involve 'three dimensional, chess-type' strategic thinking. Richard has acted on high profile cases involving the enforcement of foreign judgements and arbitration awards and pre-emptive relief. He has been listed as a leading Banking junior in the Legal 500 since 1999, in Legal Expert since 2001 and, most recently, as a leading commercial litigator in Chambers & Partners. He is also a highly experienced mediator.
