Ronald E. Lyons

For more than 35 years, I have consistently brought insight, perspective and passion to every legal matter.

I strive to understand my clients’ goals and objectives and work to develop a strategy that enables me to achieve them in a cost-effective manner. I’m proud that so many of my clients continue to seek my advice year after year.

I focus on providing legal advice to business owners regarding all aspects of their operations, as well as individuals starting new businesses. I counsel clients on how to choose the right entity; draft shareholder, succession planning, buy-sell, operating, employment, partnership and joint venture agreements; commercial leases; purchases and sales of businesses, including asset and stock purchases; as well as financing arrangements, including debt and venture capital transactions. I assist people in settling commercial disputes through the use of alternative dispute resolution including mediation and arbitration.

I also work with couples to provide security for their families by drafting estate planning documents of all types. I am also very experienced in handling the administration of estates and trusts and the probate of wills in Maryland and D.C.

I would highly recommend Ron as one of the best attorneys in the market. He is client-oriented with an eye for details. Over the years, I have often benefited from his professional opinion and guidance as he has navigated my clients through various transactions. If I'm looking for an attorney on my team Ron is the first guy I call.”
