During our time at Beanstalk, Richard and I worked together to negotiate and close dozens of licensing contracts. Richard is a true collaborator, an enthusiastic teacher and a tireless partner. While he is a fierce negotiator, Richard is always willing to cooperate and compromise, recognizing that neither party wins if the deal doesn’t close. Countless times, Richard resolved tough contract points by offering strategic and creative solutions that delighted both sides. His infinite patience serves him well in managing clients and opposing counsel, alike. Coworkers and clients benefit from Richard’s deep knowledge of trademark licensing and intellectual property, as well as the vast experience he has earned closing hundreds of contracts in dozens of industries. Richard is a fantastic person to have on your team, and I look forward to working with him again.

In our industry, legal support is a critical piece of our daily work. I have worked with many lawyers and can say that Richard is top-tier. Of note, he is extremely smart yet easy to work with. He is very quick to deliver yet keeps on top of everythign, even the small pieces. I reccomend him without reservation.

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.
