Rob is forthright in assessing the likely direction of a case and recommending a strategy for resolution, while striving to provide efficient representation and avoid prolonged litigation.

Areas of Focus

Product Liability
Rob has extensive, nationwide experience defending manufacturers and distributors of consumer, industrial, automotive and health care products. He was involved in appealing an important pharmaceutical product liability case, involving punitive damages, to the U.S. Supreme Court - particularly significant because tort cases rarely reach the country's highest court - and was successful in obtaining reversal and remand back to state court.

General Liability & Casualty
Rob represents Major League Baseball (MLB), the National Basketball Association (NBA), National Hockey League (NHL), Goldman Sachs, Viacom and its MTV and Paramount Pictures divisions, Abbott Laboratories, Vornado Realty Trust, and other major clients in complex, high-exposure bodily injury and property loss claims. He has represented both professional sports leagues and individual professional teams in liability matters. He also has defended retail, restaurant and hotel establishments and building owners and contractors in personal injury and property damage claims.

Insurance Law
Throughout his career, Rob has addressed a multitude of issues for domestic and international insurance market clients. This work has involved policy drafting, coverage analysis, and coverage litigation and arbitration, including matters with exposures running into the hundreds of millions of dollars.
