Bob is a business lawyer. Over the course of a thirty-plus year career, he has represented clients ranging from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies, handling corporate transactions and complex litigation. His goal is to provide value, solutions, and peace of mind.
He began his career litigating corporate transactions or relationships that went bad. The typical claims were for accounting malpractice, securities fraud, RICO, and a variety of other business torts. Having seen the types of things that resulted in litigation, he began representing clients in corporate transactions. He now does both, and believes that it gives him a much better perspective.
Bob graduated cum laude from the University of Minnesota Law School, where he served on the law review. His undergraduate years were spent at the University of Colorado, where he graduated magna cum laude with a B.S. in Finance. He has also taught in the MBA program at St. Mary’s University and in the undergraduate program at St. Thomas University.
In 2005, he published Liars Dice, a legal thriller based loosely on a case I handled. The book was a finalist in the Independent Publishers Awards and received great reviews in a variety of publications. In 2010, he published The Card Sharp, which is also a legal thriller, but not based on actual events.
He is a member of the Minnesota and Hennepin County Bar Associations, has participated in a variety of philanthropic organizations including Rotary and Junior Achievement, and is a kidney donor.
