    “Bob understands the business-side completely.”
    “He knows what we need to do to prepare for the future of the industry.”   


    "Listen. Learn. Deliver. It is important to understand the client’s legal and commercial objectives in a matter, what is the ideal outcome and what is an acceptable outcome. My area is all about business, and it is critically important to become fully immersed in and learn as much about the business and its competitive marketplace as is relevant; I am privileged to be able to earn an MBA in my client’s business so that I can provide tailored and thoughtful advice. Delivering means producing the best possible outcome in the most client-friendly way, and always being truly responsive to the client."
