About Robert

Robert has successfully represented employers in federal and state court in cases alleging violations of Title VII, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act and the Family and Medical Leave Act, among others.  He has also prosecuted and defended claims for trade secret misappropriation, breach of fiduciary duty, and other torts in the employment context.  Proficient in all aspects of civil litigation, he has successfully resolved cases on motions to dismiss and for summary judgment, obtained favorable rulings in appeals, and participated in multiple jury trials and arbitrations.

Robert’s prior litigation experience includes representation of individuals and businesses across the spectrum of industry in employment, commercial, and real estate litigation matters.  And he also has represented municipalities and local government entities in a variety of cases involving torts, civil rights, and other statutory and constitutional claims.  He puts this broad and extensive experience to work when counseling his clients.
