Mr. Richard Bennett is a business attorney with an MBA who began his career in Bermuda, including offshore corporate work at Bermuda’s largest law firm and developing an acquisition structure that allowed a multi-million dollar purchase of an international insurance agency to proceed despite a third party’s attempt to block the sale.
Since returning to the U.S. in 1998, Mr. Bennett continues to help business owners navigate the varied complexities involved with growing and protecting a business. His clients own businesses across a broad spectrum of enterprises, including those in the software, light industrial, hospitality, and restaurant industries.
He seeks practical solutions to meet an owner’s goal of maximizing profits given the varied cost-benefit differences among alternative legal and business strategies. Mr. Bennett enjoys problem-solving and developing creative solutions when traditional methods prove unsuccessful.
His extensive experience spans the business life-cycle, including start-up issues, agreements among co-owners, restrictive covenants for employees, incentive compensation, mergers and acquisitions, open source software licensing, and both federal and Georgia trademarks.
