    I have known Richard for a few years now, and he has always impressed me with his ability to relate law to the business of the matter. As a lawyer who has built his own legal department, Richard understands the business needs that drive clients to seek a lawyer and bringing that skills to his legal skills is unique. This is a quality that very few lawyers at firms have and will enhance Richard's representation of his clients.
