Firm Details

Richards Kibbe & Orbe LLP is a dynamic and entrepreneurial firm with deep experience and relationships in the financial markets and the business community. We conduct a highly collaborative practice through approximately 65 lawyers based in New York, Washington, D.C. and London. RK&O’s key attribute is the ability to find thoughtful, creative solutions to the hardest legal problems, in a manner carefully tailored to our clients’ objectives. Whether in a transaction, litigation or regulatory matter, we seek to provide precisely the technically excellent, informed and efficient service we would want to receive as a client.

About Us
RK&O was founded over 25 years ago with the goal of offering the highest quality legal service to the most interesting and demanding clients in the financial and business communities. That founding vision is intact. As an institution, we continue to prize skill, commitment and team spirit over size; and our hallmark remains the ability to address difficult legal issues in a way that recognizes and satisfies our clients’ business goals. One measure of our success is a loyal client base that includes many of the country’s most successful hedge funds, investment banks, public companies and accounting firms.

Our People
RK&O lawyers are exceptionally talented, creative and experienced. Our lawyers have worked at major law firms in the world’s financial centers; clerked for U.S. federal court judges; and served in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, the Securities & Exchange Commission and other government agencies. 


Our Practice
RK&O’s offices are located in New York, Washington, D.C. and London. Our practice covers a complex range of issues facing companies in the investment and business sectors. Our clients include hedge funds, private equity investors, investment banks, broker-dealers, investment advisers, insurance companies, accounting firms and a variety of other private and public enterprises. We also represent corporate boards of directors, board committees and individual corporate officers and directors.

The sophistication of our clients and their businesses often places us at the forefront of emerging trends and current issues. For instance, RK&O credit lawyers were leaders in developing the trading market for distressed debt and are today highly respected in that field; our litigators are active in the most current capital markets and business disputes and in defending organizations and persons under investigation for alleged securities law violations; our hedge fund and private equity attorneys have advised on numerous complex transactions and structuring issues; and our regulatory and compliance lawyers are recognized authorities on internal investigations, auditor independence, and U.S. and international securities law compliance issues.

Because sophisticated problems rarely confine themselves to narrow practice group definitions, we use a highly integrated, multi-disciplinary approach across practice areas and offices. We operate with a ratio of partners to associates that allows the direct personal attention of senior lawyers with the experience to resolve the issues our clients face.
