Here’s why you’ll enjoy working with him.

Bob’s practice focuses on business, franchise, and product distribution law, particularly in the automotive Industry. Growing up and working in his family’s automobile business not only gave Bob a thorough understanding of how companies are run, but also gave him unique insight into the special issues often associated with family-owned businesses.

But that’s not all. Bob is also very experienced in:

  • Counseling large automotive dealer groups, single- and multi-location franchisees, family-owned manufacturing and distribution companies, entrepreneurs, and other commercial concerns

In his former life, Bob was:

  • Business restructuring consultant

When Bob isn’t working, he is…

Collecting antiquarian books, playing golf, and watching college football. He also finds time to serve on the boards and committees of seven nonprofit organizations.
