Practice/Organization Description

Richik Sarkar is a staunch business and legal advocate, but more importantly, a trusted advisor, fixer, and business partner to his clients, helping them respond to critical situations in a way that maximizes success. He does this for clients across several industries — ranging from media agencies and technology companies to utilities and governments to local, regional, and global retailers, real estate companies, and financial institutions — by handling and directing litigation, special projects (organizational updates, policies, strategies, enforcement actions, etc.), and risk and crisis management.

Through his broad and varied practice, Richik has become an authority on many critical business topics including corporate strategy, policy and process management, corporate governance and fiduciary liability, and regulatory compliance and investigations.

Richik has particular prowess handling complex litigation and business matters relating to commercial and consumer practices and regulations, cybersecurity and cyberspace law, business torts and commercial disputes, and class action defense. He has received recognition from his clients and peers alike for his commitment to client service and his command of specific areas of law in publications such as The Best Lawyers in America® and Ohio Super Lawyers.

In sum, through comprehensive strategy, advocacy, and grit, Richik anticipates and addresses his clients’ legal, compliance, and business issues before they become complicated and costly disputes and increase risk. More importantly, Richik recognizes that his clients are not in the business of litigation; rather, they want to focus on making their organizations successful. To this important end, in addition to helping clients resolve disputes, Richik anticipates and addresses his clients' legal and business issues by providing legal advice and commercial judgment tailored to their corporate and business strategies.
