At a time when our company was in urgent need of reliable, professional legal services Richard literally came to our rescue. His razor-sharp mind and abounding enthusiasm quickly helped make Richard a crucial part of our team. He was soon masterfully negotiating deal terms and building crucial industry relationships. Richard’s intelligence and talent guided him successfully through meticulous legal research, the negotiation of huge licensing agreements, a broad range of transactional issues and the administrative quarterbacking of immense litigation proceedings. Even more valuable was the ambitious and well-constructed business plan Richard set forth that was to vastly improve the way our company operated, essentially laying the groundwork for years of income-ensuring business. I would highly recommend Richard for anyone seeking knowledgeable, professional legal assistance ”
