Whether it is leading and managing the firm and its lawyers or serving the firm's clients, Richard's focus remains the same: delivering business results which exceed expectations with an extraordinary sense of urgency, efficiency and excellence, while at the same time living the "old school" values of ethics, loyalty, family and personal accountability, which create long term relationships and lasting trust across the decades.
Richard has been considered a thought and change leader in the broader legal profession, whether it relates to his devotion to delivering excellence and value to the firm's clients or ensuring an open and fair playing field to diverse talent from all backgrounds, regardless of race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. Before becoming the firm's Executive Chairman, in his roles as the firm’s Chief Executive Officer and President, Richard made clear his primary focus on high quality, excellent service and the collaborative, respectful and empowering culture of the firm. He is, therefore, particularly proud of his work in founding and developing the firm's renowned and wide-ranging "Commitment to Excellence" program, which ensures that these values would be and remain core aspects of the firm's global brand for years to come.
