Big picture business lawyer
Richard is a great business lawyer. He's practical. He anticipates possible problems and suggests ways to avoid them before they happen. He's a deal maker, not someone who tries to find reasons not to move forward. He lets his clients make their own decisions, but provides measured and experienced legal advice to minimize future problems based on years of experience. I always recommend Rich to anyone looking for sound business legal advice.
