Richard Boyette is a Partner in the Raleigh office of Cranfill Sumner & Hartzog LLP, where his practice has consisted of a wide variety of defense and commercial litigation. Currently, his litigation practice concentrates in legal malpractice and product liability defense.

In the early 1990's, Mr. Boyette's interest in the process of mediation was kindled by an article in a bar journal. His interest lead him to attend the first mediation certification training class offered in North Carolina in early 1992, and to thereafter obtain mediator certification. Since 1992, Mr. Boyette has conducted over 1,600 mediations, both court appointed and by selection of parties, in a broad range of subject matters, including personal injury, contract, construction disputes, employment relations, professional liability, product liability, insurance coverage and stockbroker/customer disputes. He has also served as a trainer of other attorney mediators and a speaker at seminars on mediation. Mr. Boyette also serves as an arbitrator on selection of the parties in disputes of varying nature

In addition to litigation and mediation, Richard's practice includes commercial real estate transactions, including entity formation, land acquisition and construction and permanent financing. Richard has also advised and represented businesses in employment and contract disputes, and serves as general counsel to a commercial general contractor and developer.
