While at Miramar, Rick led successful investments in and served on Boards of Directors of portfolio companies acquired in M&A transactions, and co-founded Fortis in connection with one of those.

During his 20-year career at Brobeck, Rick worked on over a hundred M&A transactions involving both public and private companies, representing buyers and sellers. At Brobeck, Rick took the lead in structuring, negotiating and overseeing the execution of a wide range of sell-side acquisitions, working closely with both senior management and investors to achieve their objectives. In addition to his practice, Rick managed several of Brobeck’s regional offices and chaired Brobeck’s corporate law group nationwide.
