After spending the better part of his 20-year career at top multinational law firms, Rich Chen decided to strike out on his own. In 2019, he started the boutique law firm of Richard L. Chen PLLC. He focuses on providing legal and business advice to investment management firms.
In this episode, Rich discusses his career path, the vision for his legal practice, and why he believes that leading his own firm offers the best way to channel his passion and expertise to help clients. Rich adds his thoughts about the potential advantages a boutique law firm can offer clients. He then makes some suggestions for how investment managers can find a firm that fits their needs. A two-time Harvard graduate, Rich switches gears a bit to describes how he uses technology to improve efficiency and better deliver client services.
Outside the office, Rich participates in a number of charitable activities, including on the Board of Open Hands Legal Services. This not-for-profit organization provides free legal services to those in need in New York City. To learn more about the charity, please visit the Open Hands Legal Services’ website.
