About Me

Richard moved to southwest Florida in January 1998. During that time, he
practiced with the law firms of Cummings & Lockwood and Bond, Schoeneck
& King, with a primary emphasis in real estate. In February 2003, Richard
was able to realize a dream when he and his father, Kevin M. Lyons, opened the
doors to their new firm, Lyons & Lyons, P.A., with offices on both the east
and west coasts of Florida.


Prior to starting Lyons & Lyons, Richard served as general counsel to
George M. Steinbrenner, III. Besides being the principal owner of Major League
Baseball’s New York Yankees, Mr. Steinbrenner has significant business interests
in many areas including shipping, hospitality industry, horse racing, and
entertainment. Richard’s two years of employment with Mr. Steinbrenner was in
essence a ‘clerkship’ in business law. From this valuable experience, Richard
has developed a strong understanding of how attorneys can best serve their
business clients.


At the University of Florida, Richard was the editor-in-chief of the Florida
Journal of International Law. The Journal places a significant emphasis on
commerce and transactions and the issues arising under the framework of
international laws and treaties. Richard’s article on the issues surrounding the
conflicts between the European Union Charter, World Trade Organization and the
separate treaties between some European countries and their former colonies due
to significant market for bananas in the European Union was chosen for
publication. This article, entitled “The European Union Banana Controversy,” was
published in The Florida Journal of Law in 1995.
