About Ruric

Ruric Ellings focuses his practice on business law, with an emphasis in mergers and acquisitions, finance and securities, real estate transactions, and other general business issues.

Much of Ruric’s practice is devoted to private M&A, where he represents buyers and sellers in deals ranging from small business purchases and sales to complex transactions of $50 million or more. He provides transaction structure and risk minimization advice, drafts, and negotiates principal and ancillary purchase agreements and documents, coordinates due diligence, and prepares disclosure schedules.

Ruric maintains a robust securities practice, in which he drafts Regulation D and other private placement offering memoranda and corresponding investment documents, identifies applicable federal and state “blue sky” law exemptions, and prepares required securities filings.

With respect to his real estate practice, Ruric works with owners, their brokers, and other advisors through the process of real estate transactions to provide legal and strategic advice, and to draft purchase and sale agreements, leases, easements, and many other real estate agreements.

Ruric advises clients on a wide variety of general business matters, including business formation, subsidiary structure, dispute response and resolution, business succession, employment, and contract matters. He additionally assists clients through the preparation of shareholder and “buy-sell” agreements, LLC agreements, and shareholder/owner buy-outs, squeeze-outs, and reverse stock splits.


During his time away from the office, Ruric enjoys rooting for his hometown Seattle teams, alpine skiing, and hiking, all with his wife, Christina, and their kids.
