Ursillo, Teitz & Ritch, Ltd. (UTR) was founded in 1996 as the successor firm to Frank J. Williams, Ltd.; Frank Williams left the practice of law to serve as a judge and, ultimately, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Rhode Island. Today, led by partners Mike Ursillo, Andy Teitz and Scott Ritch, the firm maintains its commitment to excellence in the law, serving clients throughout Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
At UTR, we have built a solid foundation of trust with our clients; we have an unwavering commitment to providing a prompt and professional response to all client communications. We address our clients’ legal work with a focus on efficiency in our use of time and tactics. Our attorneys are known for being easily accessible; in fact, we like to say we provide big-firm know-how with the personal attention of a small firm.
Our name-partners all hold the AV Preeminent Peer Review Rating from Martindale-Hubbell in recognition of the highest ethical standards and professional ability. Since 2010, we have been included in Best Law Firms, which is based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations and peer review from leading attorneys in their field. Andy Teitz has been named Lawyer of the Year twice in recognition of the highest overall peer-feedback for a specific practice area.
Navigating Complex Legal Matters
As a general practice firm — with concentrations in municipal and governmental law, banking and finance, real estate and land use, estate planning and business law — we are known for successfully navigating the ins and outs of the most complex of deals, legal issues and disputes. When needed, we represent clients in litigation, often taking a preemptive problem-solving approach to contain costs and explore alternative to litigation.
Our team represents a wide range of clients throughout the region including Fortune 500 companies, businesses, developers, financial institutions, and individuals.
In our municipal and government practice, we pride ourselves on being a non-partisan firm, representing clients under the leadership of all political parties. We are committed to public service and understand the legal landscape and vital issues confronting municipalities and state government.
