My practice focuses on business transactions, health law, and mediation. My efforts have helped add billions of dollars in value to my clients.
I previously led an international law firm’s California tax department and Los Angeles corporate department; acted as the firm’s chief California ethics officer; and was the partner-in-charge of the firm’s Los Angeles office. Under my leadership, annual distributable income per partner grew by more than $300,000. My partners presented me an award for “Outstanding Teamwork and Collegiality.”
I bring years of deal-making experience to my transactions practice. I can sit across the table from a corporate lawyer, a securities lawyer and a tax lawyer, and engage each of them on equal terms.
“[Bob] tunes in to the wavelength of the businesspeople and talks to them in terms that are most important in getting on   with their business, seeing a business opportunity…He’s a very good listener.” - Alan K. Steinbrecher, Steinbrecher & Span, LLP
I have practiced health law since 1988. My clients have included hospitals, physician groups, independent physicians, practice management companies, clinical laboratories and payors. Recent engagements include crafting the dissolution of a dental group practice and serving as a peer review hearing officer in a summary suspension case.
I have engaged in mediation since 2002. My mediation practice focuses on business and healthcare cases. I have resolved many high-value legally and emotionally challenging cases.
“[Bob] has a good sense of how different sides and their positions are going to be received…He can apprise you of your level of risk in a way that perhaps you have not fully appreciated, and that's the way you move people.” - Peter I. Ostroff, Sidley Austin LLP
I received my A.B. degree from the University of Michigan Honors English Program; my J.D. degree from Duke University; and my Master of Laws (in Taxation) degree from New York University. My greatest accomplishment is my thirty-four year marriage to my wife Kathryn, a Duke Law classmate. I could not ask for a better testimonial to my negotiating skill…or hers.
