Adam P. Richards


I believe in fighting for the underdog. Too often, individuals and small businesses are treated unfairly or simply ignored because larger organizations attempt to overpower those with fewer resources or put up roadblocks for any who challenge their behavior. I’ve fought my entire life against those who feel entitled to positions of power and I work to make sure they play by the same rules as the rest of us.


Adam has been representing businesses and individuals since 2009 and has served as chief/primary trial counsel in numerous matters since 2012. Each year since 2014, Adam has been recognized as one of Super Lawyers Rising Stars, which is an honor awarded to no more than 2.5 percent of attorneys in Ohio under 40.

Adam represents clients during all phases of litigation in both state and federal courts across the country. Adam’s litigation experience focuses on the representation of businesses and individuals, and it includes the prosecution of matters on behalf of investor groups, along with various business, contract, shareholder, employment, injury and other civil disputes. As a litigator, Adam has successfully tried injury and commercial arbitration, bench and jury cases to verdict or award. Adam’s litigation practice is now focused on handling complex wrongful death, business, contract, employment, personal injury, and commercial and civil rights matters.

Adam also assists businesses with various formation, planning, and transactional issues. This is a proven benefit to both businesses and individuals determining the best plan to avoid disputes, handle disputes in their infancy to avoid litigation or the exit strategy for pending disputes, whether that be a trial or settlement. Adam’s extensive experience provides unique insight into corporate governance and transactional matters as well.
