He has significant expertise in retail dealer services and real estate development. Rick specializes in tax planning, estate and succession planning, due diligence, structuring of buy/sells, cash flow management, internal controls, litigation support, transaction assistance, benchmarking financial performance of closely-held businesses, and serves as an expert witness.
