Richard Waggoner is a global corporate law resource, helping sophisticated investors and issuers for over 25 years with private equity transactions, mergers and acquisitions, corporate litigation, contracts and general corporate legal needs. Because of the depth and breadth of Richard’s knowledge and experience, he serves as outside general counsel for several companies, including a number of private equity-controlled portfolio companies.

Widely recognized as a corporate governance lawyer, clients rely on Richard's advice regarding divestitures, executive compensation, SEC compliance and employment agreement matters, particularly in the authentication, distribution, energy, restaurant, retail and technology sectors. He also counsels boards of directors and board committees on their fiduciary duties and on corporate governance matters. Richard has advised numerous clients on distressed acquisition opportunities, finding expansion capital and the growing reluctance of banks to fund big, highly leveraged deals.

Richard has earned a reputation for his responsiveness, high client service ethic and practical approach to getting deals done – quietly and calmly.  Clients value these qualities along with Richard’s extensive and broad deal experience, both generally and in specific areas.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
