Righi Fitch Law Group is pleased to announce that Rick Righi has been invited to join the prestigious Council on Litigation Management. The Council is a nonpartisan alliance comprised of thousands of insurance companies, corporations, Corporate Counsel, Litigation and Risk Managers, claims professionals and attorneys. Through education and collaboration the organization's goals are to create a common interest in the representation by firms of companies, and to promote and further the highest standards of litigation management in pursuit of client defense. Selected attorneys and law firms are extended membership by invitation only based on nominations from CLM Fellows.
Since 1996, Mr. Righi's practice has concentrated on representing individuals, contractors and businesses in tort and contract litigation, primarily in the areas of construction defects, complex litigation, general liability, personal injury, product liability and insurance bad faith.
Mr. Righi is a mediator and arbitrator. In that capacity, he serves as a Judge Pro Tempore of the Maricopa County Superior Court. He has achieved tremendous success for his clients by applying his experience with alternative dispute resolution to litigation matters. Rick has developed a reputation as a problem solver by focusing on protocol designed to cost-effectively advance cases and achieve early resolution. And when a case cannot be resolved early in the process for whatever reason, Mr. Righi has proven track record at trial.
Rick is the past President of the Arizona Association of Defense Counsel, the Arizona affiliate of the DRI. He has managed various sub-committees of that organization during the past 11 years and chaired the AADC Construction Defect Special Interest Group for six years. He is a former member of the Maricopa County Bar Association Construction Law Section, and belongs to the Home Builders Association of Central Arizona. Mr. Righi has lectured locally and nationally on topics relating to construction and tort litigation.
