Richard Corrigan is a lawyer and businessman in Mobile, Alabama that serves local and regional businesses. His practice includes contracts, business transactions, including buying and selling businesses, and litigation of ownership disputes and breach of contract actions.
Richard earned a degree in Foreign Affairs from the University of Virginia in 1983. He was Law Review at the University of Alabama School of Law, graduating with a J.D. in 1986. He continued his education with an MBA from Spring Hill College in 2017 where he was inducted into Sigma Beta Delta as a Masters candidate.
If you are interested in selling your business, or perhaps buying a new one, you should contact a competent attorney with experience in this area. Richard has been serving Alabama and the Gulf Coast, including the Mobile and Baldwin County areas for 30 years.
In the past several months, Richard has closed transactions involving the purchase of a group of three franchise fast food restaurants and a local iconic coffee house. He is currently exploring litigation regarding breach of fiduciary duty and usurpation of corporate opportunity of a beachside watering hole that was cut short too soon by one LLC member to the exclusion of the other.
Not wishing to sit on his laurels, he rarely speaks about his $2.1 million jury verdict against a Baldwin County landlord that wrongfully evicted a restaurant tenant, then converted their trade name. After all, that was 4 years ago.
He will, however, be glad to discuss one of the first dissociation of an LLC member actions filed after the adoption of the new LLC acts in January of 2015. Or the currently pending action in which one LLC member, a lawyer no less, thought it was ok to “remove” the other member because a bank didn’t like the other guy’s credit score, without telling the other member. Except he didn’t really remove him.
Some people just don’t play fair. They should.
Rule 7.2 of the Alabama rules of professional conduct requires the following:
“No representation is made that the quality of the legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers.”
