Rob’s active business litigation practice focuses primarily on complex commercial disputes in the federal courts, including false and deceptive trade practice, false advertising, and consumer labeling claims, commercial fraud claims, civil RICO cases, and intellectual property disputes including trademark, trade dress and copyright. His status as a multiply-published best-selling author gives him a unique perspective on IP issues. Rob is one of New Hampshire’s most experienced litigators on the scope and application of the New Hampshire Consumer Protection Act, NH RSA 358-A, and a seasoned appellate advocate before the New Hampshire Supreme Court.
Rob is an aggressive litigator who is well-versed in electronic discovery, the collection of electronically stored information (ESI), and the latest technologies available to efficiently develop and prepare a case for trial. He has successfully tried cases to juries, judges and administrative tribunals in both the state and federal systems. Rob appreciates that in many cases, skillfully mediating a dispute prior to trial can produce the optimal business outcome while simultaneously fixing risk, and he has extensive experience preparing cases for mediation and/or arbitration. He brings a creative, multi-disciplinary approach to his practice which has earned him the trusted position of outside general counsel to some of the region’s largest privately held companies.
Rob is admitted to practice in New Hampshire, before the United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire, and the United States Courts of Appeals for the First and Eighth Circuits.
