Focused on providing practical advice that makes sound business sense, Randy Lickey serves as an outside general business counsel and advisor to privately-held middle market companies in the U.S. and to U.S. subsidiaries of foreign-parent companies.

Randy is the former chair of the Corporate Section at Williams Mullen and continues to serve as a vice chair of that section. His practice includes representing and advising business clients on corporate, business, and transactional matters, including organizational and structuring issues, corporate governance, commercial contracts, mergers and acquisitions, reorganizations, recapitalizations, and other complex business transactions. Randy also assists clients in complex ventures and transactions involving partnerships, limited liability companies, and joint ventures.

Having knowledge of both the business and tax aspects pertaining to such ventures, he is able to assist clients in finding solutions in order to overcome issues and achieve their desired business goals and objectives.

Privately held companies across a number of industries count on Randy’s knowledge and experience, including manufacturers, distributors, logistics companies, and service providers. Among the clients with whom he has regularly worked are auto dealerships; distributors of motor fuels and other petroleum products; food manufacturers; home furnishings manufacturers; and transportation companies.

As outside general counsel, Randy helps clients evaluate and manage their legal risks and compliance issues. He also joins with clients’ executive management teams in evaluating and implementing strategic plans, including assisting with strategic acquisitions and divestitures.

An important aspect of Randy’s work with each client is a commitment to understanding the client’s business. He wants to know what is important to each client, what makes them grow, and how he can best help them in achieving their business goals, as well as in addressing the legal and regulatory issues they may confront. Foremost in his client relationships is building a strong atmosphere of trust, so that clients know they can count on Randy and Williams Mullen. If Randy can’t provide the answer or solution, he is committed to finding someone who can.
