Richard S. Guy


Richard Guy concentrates his practice in business formations, purchases, sales and mergers; banking, commercial finance and secured transactions; creditor’s rights and bankruptcy; commercial real estate; and commercial litigation.

Richard is a “womb to tomb” business lawyer. At the start of the lifecycle of a business, Richard assists the owners in choosing the entity that is best for their particular business plan. His assistance includes advice about financing their growth (either conventionally or through private placements), handling offensive and defensive commercial litigation, and arranging for the owners to share in the benefits of the commercial real estate that supplies the office space to the business. As businesses reach the critical mass where they seek to acquire other businesses or are themselves attractive targets, he represents both buyers and sellers in stock, asset, and merger transactions. In several instances, his clients have sold businesses he helped them start and began the cycle again by forming new businesses with their sales proceeds.
