"Rich Vicenzi has guided us over the last year as we have transitioned our software business from a traditional software licensing model to a subscription-based model, drafting new agreements and addressing the unique business, data and legal concerns. Our ability to leverage Rich’s extensive corporate experience was invaluable. In addition, Rich negotiated contracts with key customers, taking the lead to close complex deals with our Fortune 500 customers."

"I have worked with Rich for over 10 years and Rich has helped us migrate from a very small company into a mid-level company. He has not only been our legal counsel dealing with customer agreements, but he has been very involved in our organizational structure, capital needs, business issues, and security issues. As we have gone up-market and are working with some of the largest airlines, Rich has been extremely instrumental in advising me on deal structure from our pricing to the SLA. Without someone like Rich, we would not have been able to accomplish a lot of what we have achieved."
