Tyler M. Richardson

Professional Experience

Tyler is a sought after paralegal at Ruder Ware because he excels at untangling the web of archane procedures.  An intrepid problem-solver, he appreciates the dynamic, ever-changing aspects of the law and the academic stimulation of poking at weaknesses to strengthen a client’s case.  At Ruder Ware Tyler provides paralegal support for attorneys practicing in the areas of employment, litigation, and local governments.  Typical duties include:

  • Assisting attorneys with discrimination, retaliation, whistleblower, worker misclassification, and non-compete matters
  • Assisting with FMLA, ADA, and employment law compliance issues
  • Preparing initial drafts of pleadings
  • Summarizing deposition transcripts
  • Assisting with legal research projects
  • Preparing trial exhibits and providing paralegal assistance during trials in state and federal court
  • Assisting with independent investigations
  • Assisting municipalities in ordinance enforcement matters
  • Assisting with the drafting of briefs for both interest and grievance arbitrations
  • Working alongside attorneys in contract negotiations, preparation of wage and benefit costings, and comparable data for school districts and municipalities
  • Assisting with Open Meetings Law and Public Records Law compliance matters.
  • Assisting with OFAC and other international sanction law compliance matters

While completing his paralegal studies degree, Tyler worked with the Dunn County Circuit Court Judges' Office where he assisted with preparing jury instructions and special verdict questions, performed legal research, and prepared legal memorandums.

Tyler enjoys being a dad and hopes to impart his love of board games onto his son.  An avid reader, Tyler reads both fiction and non-fiction (mainly history and science).  Other times, his head is in the clouds, admiring and photographing their variations throughout the seasons.
