I have had the privilege of knowing John Rizzardi for a couple of years. Having worked closely with he and his firm recently several successful transactions, I can attest to the rumors being trueâ€¦.He and his firm are absolutely top notch. Called upon frequently by successful companies and investors that are looking at M&A opportunities or those that are navigating the nuances of financial hardships, he is simply the best.
John Rizzardi has been legal counsel for Lender for more than 20 years. As Lender’s primary special asset manager for Western Washington, I have personally worked closely with Mr. Rizzardi during this entire time period. He has been Lender’s primary Western Washington counsel in complex timber and diversified agriculture troubled debt restructuring situations, including work-downs, workouts, liquidations, and Chapter 7, 11, 13 bankruptcy cases.
Mr. Rizzardi has always been professional, practical, cost-conscious, and most responsive. He is diligent in matching his firm’s assets and strengths to Lender’s given situations. Mr. Rizzardi also is well networked and has extensive and well established relationships with the most qualified business professionals in Western Washington and other regions.
He is undoubtedly one of the most experienced and reputable creditors’ attorneys in Washington State.
John has helped steer our real estate development company through the worst housing and financial crisis in decades. He has provided excellent legal counsel. He has also been a trusted sounding board providing well grounded business advice during a time of chaos and dramatic change for our company.
His experience working with banks and creditors as well as other builders and developers has proved invaluable in the creation of realistic work out plans.
I would highly recommend John to anyone in need of a knowledgable and resourceful attorney.
