Richard H. Waxman is a business lawyer with decades’ experience in law firms in the New York Metropolitan area and south Florida. He advises and represents successful closely held businesses, and the owners of those businesses, in connection with a broad range of business matters, including employment law matters. His areas of legal expertise are examined in detail in the Practice Areas section of this website. While the firm’s target client is a successful closely held business or professional practice, with up to $50M in gross revenues and 500 employees…we also provide competent, attentive and reasonably priced legal services to far smaller businesses.
He has authored numerous articles, newsletters, and alerts on legal issues faced by closely held businesses, many of which are posted on this website under the Practice Areas tab. He has lectured extensively on those issues and serves on the faculty of the National Academy of Continuing Legal Education (i.e. he teaches lawyers how to practice law!). Since the advent of the “me too” era, he has helped numerous clients address the risk of Sexual Harassment claims by conducting Sexual Harassment Prevention Training, as mandated by recent NYS and NYC laws. He is outside employment law counsel to two prominent law firms.
