Robert's practice is focused on the life sciences and chemical industries. Over the course of his career, he has counseled clients on the discovery, design, and protection of many successful therapeutic and diagnostic products with important commercial and humanitarian benefits. He is recognized by Chambers USA (2012-2017) as a "phenomenal" lawyer and "practical, strategic thinker" who "is very good at thinking outside the box and looking at every angle and advising on how to best move forward."
As a registered pharmacist, Robert is able to speak the same language as the researchers, managers, and investors with whom he interacts daily. He is particularly adept at analyzing complex issues and effectively crafting, communicating, and implementing solutions that achieve his clients' goals–whether for raising capital, closing the deal, or obtaining a bet-the-company patent.
Clients benefit from Robert's significant experience in virtually all aspects of intellectual property law, including:
- Patent prosecution
- Freedom to operate
- Technology transfer
He also regularly advises clients on product acquisition and divestiture, joint ventures and alliances, technology licensing, outsourcing, and other technology-related transactions.
Robert serves as an adjunct professor at Seton Hall University School of Law School, where he teaches patent drafting and prosecution.
