Baton Rouge-based Richmond Law, LLC Merges Practice with SNW, Expanding Firm’s Business Offerings and Adding a Bankruptcy Practice

NEW ORLEANS/BATON ROUGE – The law firm of Sternberg, Naccari & White, LLC is pleased to announce that Richmond Law, LLC, the practice of well-known Baton Rouge business and bankruptcy lawyer Ryan Richmond, has merged with the firm.

In the midst of our statewide stay-at-home order, the firm is committed to continue its aggressive expansion and preparation for the post-COVID-19 business climate. Ryan will now captain the firm’s bankruptcy practice and take a leading role with its business general counsel practice. 

Ryan has significant experience in small business bankruptcies, business formation, business counsel, financial and start-up issues. As counsel to numerous small businesses throughout Louisiana, his experience will improve the firm’s offerings and expand its Baton Rouge business.

A former law clerk for the Middle District of Louisiana Bankruptcy Court, Ryan adds nearly 15 years of well-rounded bankruptcy experience to the firm. He served as lead counsel in two hotel bankruptcy cases, successfully obtaining confirmed plans of reorganization. Ryan also helped the trustee of a liquidating self-insurance fund for workers’ compensation recover more than $1 million for the benefit of creditors. Currently, Ryan is leading some of the very first subchapter V reorganization cases under the new Small Business Reorganization Act of 2019.

Richmond Law’s signature program, Concierge Legal, will continue with SNW. Under Concierge Lawyering, business clients pay a flat monthly rate and are not charged by the hour. SNW already has several clients with similar arrangements and plans to expand this alternative fee offering with the addition of Richmond.

“Ryan Richmond has built an enviable solo practice in just two years,” said SNW Partner Scott Sternberg. “He is an entrepreneur – which is our number one requirement for a potential lawyer — and his Concierge Legal program is an attractive offering. We are also thrilled that bankruptcy and reorganization are services we can now offer Baton Rouge and New Orleans.”
