Martin Richards

Vice Chair

Why London?

Martin played a key role in creating LCF by bringing together several smaller community foundations to create one, pan-London charity in 2012. He loves the variety of London and everything it has to offer but knows not everyone is able to take full advantage of this. Martin would like to see the fortunate and privileged help those who are struggling to make ends meet. By supporting the disadvantaged and putting something back, we can help London be a better place for Londoners. A Wandsworth resident since 1980, Martin is also a keen fisherman but has yet to catch a trout in the River Wandle! 

Professional background: 

Career at Clifford Chance, specialising in company law. Founding Trustee of the International Lawyers Project (2005-2011).
