Richard Ng has extensive experience defending private physicians, hospitals and nursing homes in medical malpractice actions involving significant injuries and exposure. He has defended client matters from inception through trial in high-exposure cases relating to brain injury, cancer, amputations and wrongful death. Richard also has significant experience defending hospitals and business clients in general and premises liability claims. In addition to the litigation and risk management services he provides to his clients, and in keeping with Wilson Elser's full-service approach to zealous representation of clients, Richard has successfully defended and taken verdicts in premises liability matters.

Richard’s first priority is to defend his clients’ interests.

To best defend his client and develop an effective strategy, Richard anticipates and understands the claims as well as the areas of potential liability and damages that will be argued by the plaintiff.
