Join us to talk with Richard Jacobs, author of CRASH LANDING

Surviving a Business Crisis

A story you will remember

CRASH LANDING:  SURVIVING A BUSINESS CRISIS by Richard Jacobs is about a business failure; the collapse of a major bank in Florida.

But in a broader sense, CRASH LANDING is about leading a business during the most perilous of times — during crisis when there is no visible end to trouble and when there is no solution that seems to work. It is about the "right executive stuff" that turns out to be the "wrong executive stuff"; it is about the painful lessons that emerged from the wreckage of a major business.

Dick Jacobs focuses his practice on health law, corporate and tax law, personal estate planning and asset protection. Dick graduated from Stetson University College of law, magna cum laude and the University of Wisconsin with a B. B. A. with honors.

Dick built one of the largest law firms on the west coast of Florida. He took a leave of absence from his firm to assist a troubled bank for which he served as president and CEO during its final three years in business. As a result of his experience, he wrote the book Crash Landing, Surviving a Business Crisis, published by Glenbridge Publishing Ltd.

Dick currently serves as general council for the Pinellas County Medical Society. He is a trustee of the St. Petersburg Arts Center, where he serves as president. He is also a member of the board of directors of Raymond James Trust Co. He has served as chairman of the Florida Bar Tax Section, trustee of Stetson College of Law, as well as numerous other positions.
