Before joining Wolf Greenfield, Bob was in private practice in Virginia.
"Bob is technically brilliant and he absolutely knows our needs. I appreciate how when he reaches an opinion on a judgment call he shares the details of his thinking and isn’t afraid to offer his judgment."
"When I joined here, Bob was the only outside counsel that reached out to me and was generous with his time and was willing to give me a lot of information and training material and really helped me with my learning curve. I also like him as a person. He’s a good guy and someone I want to work with, and I can’t say that about a lot of lawyers."
"Bob’s responsiveness is kind of amazing, actually. I know I’m not the only client he has, but I feel like I am the only client on the days he is working for me. He is clear in his communication, handholds when necessary and intelligently presents the information. He is very willing to hop on a call, participate in a meeting and very good with scheduling the work. Stuff I send doesn’t languish with Bob."
"I am so happy to work with Bob. The conversation is clear and to the point. The way he presents a claim and an issue and how it can be looked at makes it so simple to understand. It takes a great skill to present the claim that way."
Bob has been named one of the Massachusetts Super Lawyers’ “Rising Stars” in the field of intellectual property law.
