Ryley Carlock & Applewhite | August 2014


Welcome! I’m Rudy Parga Jr., managing shareholder of the law firm Ryley Carlock & Applewhite. I’m honored to serve as Guest Editor of In Business Magazine’s August issue not only because it focuses on multiculturalism (a topic I care deeply about), but also because it features the 2014 Legal Guide and gives me a chance to tout our firm’s amazing team of lawyers.

The Business of Solutions®. Our tagline and registered trademark is The Business of Solutions®. We chose it because we are in the business of providing solutions for our clients. That’s what fuels our work ethic; it’s the reason we’re so passionate about what we do. The legal and business solutions we provide help our clients maximize opportunity and minimize or remove risks and impediments. Our creative and diverse problem-solvers are eager to assist businesses in finding a solution to whatever legal opportunities and challenges they are facing. 

Strategic Growth in the Southwest. In growing a law firm that addresses the issues most vital to the region, we’ve strategically assembled a team of people who bring both legal expertise and genuine concern for our clients and the community. We are proud of our nearly 70-year heritage in the Southwest and our growth to more than 120 lawyers. We have maintained an active and developing presence in Arizona since 1948. In 2005, the firm expanded into Colorado, where we provide services in water, environmental, mining, natural resources, real estate, corporate and business, tax, estate planning and intellectual property law.

Client Service & Loyalty. Because our focus is on delivering solutions, we care about understanding our clients’ business objectives. We are passionate about helping our clients succeed. We think that’s why we have enjoyed client/attorney relationships with some of our clients for more than six decades.

Range of Service. Our lawyers represent all segments of the business community, ranging from public and private companies to large corporations and start-ups to governments and individual entrepreneurs. Our lawyers have the depth and breadth to handle nearly every type of transactional or litigation matter encountered by our clients.

Emphasis on Diversity. As a firm, we believe that understanding issues from different perspectives facilitates our ability to provide valuable counsel and formulate solutions for our clients.

Thank you! We look forward to providing practical and creative legal solutions to the Phoenix business community in 2014 and beyond!
