About Us

Michael W. Richards entered the law business after nearly two decades in broadcasting and journalism. As a professional journalist, he shared in both a Columbia DuPont Award and an Edward R. Murrow Award during a first career covering national affairs from Washington and global Issues from the United Nations. He moved into the law just at the space where old media was meeting up with new media - as part of a team doing legal work on the merger between AOL and Time Warner at the turn of the millennium. He has counseled and represented broadcasters, media businesses, journalists and others in expressive fields on regulation, FCC policy, intellectual property, free speech and business concerns - launching his own firm in 2009. His academic credentials include a law degree from Georgetown University and a master's degree from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. He is admitted to the bar in Maryland and the District of Columbia.
