    I am happy to endorse Richard. I met Richard 3 years ago where we worked together in the legal department of The Beanstalk Group. At Beanstalk, Richard displayed great problem solving and negotiating skills across hundreds of multi-national transactions. He has a reputation for being easy to work with and always providing sound advice. I recently hired Richard to advise my company on a corporate transaction. Richard provided great work and helped my company close an important deal. I would not hesitate to hire Richard again and I highly recommend using his legal services.

    As both a business person and an attorney, I highly recommend Richard Bergovoy. I have worked with Richard for over ten years. I appreciate that Richard is quick, accurate, reasonably priced, responsive, and knowledgeable. In my opinion, he is one of the most valued partners a small business owner could ever wish for. As an attorney, I appreciate that he has a wealth of experience working for and handling sophisticated transactions with Fortune 500 counterparties. Richard’s years of experience in the trademark licensing, intellectual property, computer/Internet law, publishing, finance, and bankruptcy fields has provided him with a storehouse of knowledge, solutions, and approaches to difficult and unusual problems. Richard always makes himself available for advice, direction and assistance, and can be counted on to collaborate on a challenge in order to arrive at a creative, speedy, problem solving solution. I consider him my trusted legal advisor.
